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!

DS Clinic for the boys tomorrow.

Down Syndrome clinic tomorrow. I should be excited! I'm going to find out if Theo can hear!

I'm dreading the whole day.

Ralph gets his meds at midnight. It's the only way it works to give him the medication that he needs every eight hours. He leave for school at 11:30am and doesn't get home until 4pm and that kind of jacks the whole eight hour schedule up. Unless I want to get up at 3:30am every single day of my life. What's worse?

We have to leave at 4am tomorrow to get to the appointment on time. I've got to stay awake somehow because it's just me and three babies. Eating snack always helps, so I'm sure I'll be sick and bloated by the time I get home! ha!

Also, everyone in the house has been half sick. You know, not down and out, but still not 100%. Theo has been running a low grade fever and everyone is dripping with snot. What do you want to bet that he gets sick for reals tomorrow?

These are the hard kind of days when you hold your nose, 'cause the situation stinks, and you put one foot in front of the other through sheer will. I'm going to live through it. I've done it before. I'm sure it won't be the last time. I'm going to grin and bear it.


  1. Aw, wish I lived close...I would go with you or stay home with the kiddos...I will say a prayer for your travels tomorrow and for a positive result for Theo!


  2. Praying all goes well for you tomorrow as you travel and w/ their appointments. Praying for great results too!

  3. Thinking of you a lot today. I prayed that all went well. Circumstances reminded me to pray for you during the day, driving in traffic with a puking child- I was reminded that you had 3 babies/ young children in the car. Luckily I had my 10 year old son, who was forced to help.
