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!

You are feeling very sleepy...

You are feeling very sleepy...
Seriously, I think this beautiful boy has me hypnotized! I could just snuggle him and stare at him all day long. Must be love.
When Theo is unhappy, crabby, and crying there is one surefire way to cheer him up, toss the little sweetie into the air!! You can't toss him too high. The higher you toss, the happier he gets!
These fantastic photos were taken by my good friend, Valerie. She brought her two teenagers with her to play with the kids. Her son, Eric, had a great time pushing Zhen on the swing! Thanks dear friends!!!

I just love it when this sweetheart smiles big. Doesn't he deserve this kind of happiness and freedom?

(My son Chipper would like me to point out that Zhen is wearing an Atlanta Braves shirt.)


  1. Look at those happy little smiles!!! How could anyone see smiles like those and not just melt into a puddle of mush!? Beautiful boys!! :)

  2. I melted in the puddle of mush too!!! Beautiful!!!!!!

  3. how do manage to get anything done with such cuteness around....
