Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

Another month has past...

Wow - time is going so fast!

Hearing is Believing - UPDATED

For those of you who attended Nathan's baby shower you may remember this pacifier given by my friend Lisa! I wanted a funny picture to post and thought this was perfect!
On another note, Nathan had his hearing test yesterday and it went splendidly! We went to another hearing institution because I just felt uncomfortable with the original location and it turned out to be the right decision!
We are going to be having a very special and totally fun weekend - stay tuned!!
UPDATE - I've had to remove this post the first time - so if you left a comment it's been deleted but we read them. For some reason we received a message, which was from a pornographic spam blog. Google is aware of it and is taking actions to remove the blog. If it happens again there are ways around it and we'll cross that bridge when we come to it!

Blessings In Disguise

Blessings in Disguise
By Thomas Kempis
God sends his little angels
In many forms and guises,
They come as lovely miracles
That God alone devises.
For every little angel
With a body bent and broken,
Or a little mind disabled
Or little words unspoken,
Is just God's way of trying
To reach and touch the hand
Of all who do not know Him
And cannot understand
That often through an angel
Whose wings will never fly
The Lord is pointing out the way
To His eternal sky
Where there will be no handicaps
Of body, soul or mind,
And where all limitations
Will be dropped and left behind.
So accept these little angels
As gifts from God above,
And thank Him for this lesson
In faith and hope and love.

Friday Night Fights For Down Syndrome!!

On Friday night, my friend Lisa had her annual Pugnacious Promotions ESPN Friday Night Fights boxing match in Saratoga and the Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center was the charity of the night!!!!!!!!!

Thanks Lisa!!!

The organization raised almost $1,000 in car raffle tickets and 50/50 tickets -- every dollar raised can make the difference in someones life! So, I'm thankful to Lisa and Paul for allowing the organization to have this opportunity!

This is a picture of a local boxer Gary Wilcox, Patrick, and myself from that night.
