Changing the Face of Beauty Gives More Than Advertisement

I have a confession. I have only personally met two other mommas that have children with DS. I have met so many beautiful families, via IG, that share a similar journey as ours and I’m so thankful for that friendship! However, the need for a personal connection is vital!
Y’all are “my people”! I need you and you need me. It’s as simple as that. I couldn’t stop crying as I was getting ready this morning because I was afraid of my own emotions that may come out when I walked into our first @changingthefaceofbeauty photo shoot! I was about to be surrounded by more families like mine than I’ve ever been around and they didn’t even know it. I say this because our kids aren’t the only ones that need to see themselves in advertisements, dolls, and magazines. We as parents need to see ourselves in another face, another story, another testimony, over a cup of coffee, or even in a lingering hug.
We never know what another is feeling when we meet them or come into their presence. A simple gesture of love and acceptance is all someone may need.
I have a feeling this is just the beginning of many precious connections! To all my new friends I met today, you and your children are beautiful in so many ways and I’m honored that you are “my people”! .

Babies and toddlers are the best people watchers (and obviously dog watchers!) That is how they learn without being given specific instructions.❤️ Isn’t it funny that teaching a child what’s acceptable and what’s not acceptable is a whole other ball game!
EXAMPLE: 💁🏼‍♀️ While trying to get my children to eat broccoli, I’ve pretended with them that we were giants and the broccoli were little trees.
We also eat salad that looks like grass or weeds we see in the back yard, but
then tell them “NO! Don’t eat the grass”. Savannah observes and mimics everything! She is incredibly smart and has a “hunger” to learn! Now to teach her we don’t eat our little trees from a dog bowl! 🤪🙆‍♀️
