A little background on my family.
I got married in 1969 and was married for 27 years before my husband decided he wanted to get out. We did remarry a year later because of course the grass is never greener on the other side but because of some personal problems he had it just didn't work.
During these 27 years we had 8 children, 3 of these were adopted.
By birth I had 4 sons and 1 daughter. My daughter is Down Syndrome and she was 3rd out of the 5. When she was 2 I had twin boys. I was very young and remember it all with joy. When my twins were 10 I really wanted another child. I had always wanted many children but my husband was less enthused  about this.  We did adopt a little baby girl, 9 days old, with Down Syndrome. This was in 1986.  In 1988 we adopted a 12 year old with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and then in 1990 we adopted another baby girl with Down Syndrome. The last 2 were difficult but through the years they have come to be such a blessing and perfect additions to our family.
The boys all love their sisters and when we are all together we are loud and crazy.
I also have 3 beautiful grandchildren and 2 on the way and soon will have 2 step grandchildren. So the family is expanding and that means more fun for all.
I have been divorced since 2002 and the girls and I have a wonderful time together. We do our daily programs, schools, etc and we travel and we do daily outings. We love the movies and shopping for our daily activities and we love to cruise for our fun trips. We are also planning an east coast trip in the next couple years and have a Disney Cruise planned in Nov of 2011.
If you have questions about the adoption process and can surely help with this.
If you have questions about travel with your disabled child and can help and if not I can always find an answer for you.
Have a good day.
