Well, I was looking back at pictures from the past year and a half, and some that caught my eye are of my sweet firstborn, Megan. She is just such a delight. Megan was born with Down syndrome. I had just turned 23 when I had her. Usually children with Down syndrome are born to older women, so it was pretty surprising, but not a tragedy. Like a perpetual four year old, Megan is just a light in this world who shines like an EverBright flashlight! She is happy and easygoing most of the time; carefree and joyful. She thinks of others and is eager to please. She loves making cards, pictures, and such for other people. And especially, Megan has a wonderful sense of humor!

Megan has always shared a love of dollhouse people like I did as a child. Everyday she will spend time playing with hers, imagining out all sorts of situations. Besides sitting them on the piano while she “plays” it, she sets them up on the kitchen table for church, choir, meetings, acting out shows, etc. Her imagination is wonderfully developed and it is a delight to listen to her make her “people” interact so freely and innocently. I imagine she will always play with her dollhouse people, no matter how old she is.
After all, her mother is still playing around with them. ;)
