Stories from our families in honor of WDSD 3/21… Meet Krista!

This is my daughter, Krista.   In just a matter of 11 years, Krista has inspired and brought so much happiness to everyone she meets.

When Krista was first born, my husband and I mostly heard the negative about having a child with Down syndrome.  Krista hasn’t stopped showing us the positive.  She has also proven time and time again that if she wants it, she makes it happen!
Krista has taught us patience, faith, unconditional love, and how to appreciate the small things in life.   Krista may not understand it today, but her positive spirit and her never ending self confidence, make me want to be a better person.
I truly believe my husband and I were given a very special gift the day Krista was born.  We can’t wait to watch all the wonderful things she will offer this world!
