Living Arrows – A portrait every week of what having children is all about.  Some weeks it will be Ella or Lucy, others a favourite toy, place, meal or just something that has caught my eye that wouldn’t neccessarily have happened if we didn’t have children!

So, 1/52 – Ella’s beloved cat and snuggle.  Come bedtime, she won’t be parted from them but at other times of the day they can be found in various places…  Finding them carelessly flung over the stair gate from the top of the stairs is always my favourite though!

Our first baby, Ella Mary, was born at the end of November 2010. We were shocked to find out soon after her birth that she has Down's Syndrome. I was determined from the start that Down's Syndrome will never define Ella or what she is able to do. We will provide for her everything she needs to become the child and the person she deserves to be. There will be hard times ahead.... there are already many hard times behind us. But I already know that the good times will always outweigh the hard times. She has taught me so much in such a short time and seeing life from a new perspective is a privilege that not many of us get the chance to experience.
