A Gift to offer

I have not been sure whether to start a blog about Reagan.  I don't do a real great job keeping up with my baking blog, and wasn't sure if I had anything really valuable to offer the Down syndrome blogging world.  I am not an inspiring, eloquent writer like Susanna.  Nor am I a passionate cheerleader like Patti.  So what do I have? Then I realized.  I have this.

This beautiful, precious, perfect baby girl that God has entrusted to me.  And she has changed me and our family in ways that could not even have been imagined before.  I don't know what her purpose in life will be, but I do know that her existence will bring joy and understanding to the world.  It already has to ours and to those around us.  I don't really know what the purpose of this blog will be, but if it brings hope or blessing or answers to others than that's enough.  So here's my New Year's resolution: to share this angel with the world.
 Meet Reagan Candice born September 17th all sweetness and softness and with a little extra chromosome.

Wow, I get to be your first follower and your first poster.... What a priviledge to be this precious little girls "Papa"

Patti said...

She is such a little doll, Shauna. WHERE did you get the beautiful hat in the first picture and headband in the second?! Please share your shopping secrets!

Shauna said...

Patti, they are not actually mine. A very good friend of mine (who adopted a child with severe medical needs) is an amazing photographer and she did all that. She sure makes my baby look cute doesn't she :) Actually she just posted on my facebook and said that she can't take credit for them, that they were touched by God.

Patti said...

Oh, how sweet! My daughter is starting a photography business, I will have to tell her to get some good props:)

Deanna said...

oh my goodness your daughter is absolutely gorgeous! I definitely will look forward to more posts. (-:

Shauna said...

Yes Patti I've seen some of your daughter's pictures of Lily...she's good :) A ben bag is what she used to get all the snuggly shots.

Deanna...I saw that you are a music teacher...me too!

I HAVE to comment since this is my daughter and my granddaughter who is named after me! Reagan is the delight of our family. To those of you who also blog-thank you so much as it is very helpful. Shauna is a great mommy and much more. Piano teacher, Pilot and flight instructor, baker of "Curious Cupcakes and Confections" (see that blog too!), and mommy. We have so much fun!
