I got mail!!!! I got mail! were the exciting words bubbling out of my little girl today.
Emma Sage loves getting the mail out of the mailbox and always asks "I get mail?" to which I usually have to reply "no". Most times I give her the junk mail so she can open it and''read'.
Well today there was a surprise in the mailbox...............A letter for Miss Emma Sage.
What is truly amazing about this special letter [besides making my little girl so gloriously happy] is that the letter came from someone that we don't know..............or really know in real life. A visitor to our blog saw a picture of Emma Sage at her Nana's mailbox looking for mail and read that Emma Sage loves to get mail and contacted me to ask if they could send a letter.
How cool is this? The Internet is truly an amazing paradigm. I have met so many incredible friends online because my daughter was born blessed with an extra chromosome. People that my life's journey would not have crossed paths with if for not the magic of T21.
So today, Emma Sage's new friend Claire and her Mommy sent a letter [and a butterfly sticker and a picture of Claire [[who is absolutely adorable I must say.........and also sports that designer gene]] and made me little girls day.
She has been walking around with the notecard [a beautiful hand-stamped card no less] and a butterfly sticker that is truly lifelike and a picture of a precious little girl named Claire and telling everyone she comes into contact with "Look, I got mail"............."Mail from my new friend Claire"
So thank you cyberspace for giving us a platform to share our lives.............make new friends...........and let the whole wide world know that Down syndrome/Trisomy 21 is a blessing and not a diagnosis to be afraid of.
