Today, please welcome our first guest: Melissa from Garden of My Heart.
I started reading Melissa's blog when I was pregnant, and I loved seeing her daughter. I've mentioned often that I was drawn to photos of little girls a bit older than Ellie, because they made me feel like Ellie would be okay. Rowenna is two, and she's adorable.
I sent Melissa the following list of questions. Enjoy getting to know her, her faith, and Miss Rowenna. Then pop on over to Melissa's blog and say hi. I bet you'll learn something; I usually do.
1. What is your faith background (pre-child with Down syndrome)?
2. How was your faith impacted by your child's diagnosis? How did your faith impact how you viewed the diagnosis?
3. Has your faith shaped the way you see your child with Down syndrome? How is it impacting the way you raise your child?
4. If you're part of a faith community, how have they embraced your child?
