Psalm 68:5-6

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.

God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

I am Stepanie Nance. My family adopted two little boys with Down Syndrome from Ukraine in 2010. I hope to educate and to inspire you. I hope to make you laugh and to make you cry.

Come along for the ride. It's a wild one!

Something beautiful...

Something beautiful is happening right now.

You might remember that on our 22+ hour trip home from Ukraine Theodore didn't sleep more than a few minutes.

He couldn't.

He had no idea how to relax with me holding him. I realized when we got home and I placed him in his bed that he needed to be put down and left alone. Left alone to rock and roll himself to sleep.

How sad.

You will be pleased to know that at this very moment my sweet angel is laying in my arms like a ragdoll...sleeping. He is just as limp and relaxed as can be. He still sleeps with his eyes open, which freaks me out sometimes. But, I'm enjoying this special moment and typing with one hand anyway.

Thank you God.


  1. What a gift... a blessing from God.

  2. That put a smile on my face...I needed that today!

  3. *sigh* Simply beautiful. Enjoy! :)

  4. What a blessing! That makes me smile too. :-)

  5. Call it hormones, or a heart that is touched so deeply by that, but that image made me cry. I am sure it'll please Tatumn, too. PTL, he is learning so quickly that his mommy is his source of comfort. :)
