Every one of us was created in the image of God and every one of us has our own unique set of skills, features, and traits that make us who we are. Having Down Syndrome does not take away from this simple truth, if anything it is a constant reminder of how unique we are. Instead of looking at Down Syndrome as something that is “weird” or “different” we should choose to embrace it and to celebrate it. We get to celebrate this reality every day through Hannah, and we hope that by sharing our journey we can inspire, educate, and motivate you to look at Down Syndrome in a whole new way.
13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
-Psalm 139:13-15 (ESV)
