Emma Sage and I are heading out tomorrow morning at the crack of dawn.....actually, even before the sun begins to rise.
We are heading west....to visit with lots of friends who are traveling this same journey we are.....living with and loving someone with Down syndrome.
Some of the friends we will be meeting up with, are friends we met online, whilst I was pregnant with Emma Sage......with only 'soft markers' and a Mother's intuition to know that the precious little one I was carrying deep within my womb and under my heart was going to enter our world and change all of us in the most profound ways. These woman understood that Mother's intuition.......they also welcomed me with open arms, telling me that if I was wrong, that they would still love for me to visit the Down syndrome board at Parents Place, as I was counted in as one of their own.
On May 9, 2001.....I officially became a member of this amazing group of kindred souls.....by the birth of our sweet Emma Sage.
So, keep us in your thoughts and prayers for safe travels.....
and I'll have lots and lots of pictures and stories to share of our weekend, early next week.
Peace and love, Tara Marie & Emma Sage
