Three years later and I cannot imagine life without Nichole, even life without Down syndrome. Nichole has come to challenge us in the way we do life, the way we think, and the things that we value. She has taught us much about joy, peace, and unconditional love.
When I look at her I am blown away by her beauty. Not only because of her outward appearance, but because Nichole has the unique ability to show you her soul, her heart. There is so much love in her little being, so much acceptance.
I love her with a fierceness that pushes me to do things I thought I would have been too timid to know. She challenges me to be the best I can be.
It is an honor to be Nichole's mother.
I love you my little rascal. You are a light in my life.
