On November 18 2009 at 4:02 am William Alan Bartosch was joyfully welcomed into our family. He weighed in at 7 lbs 9 oz and 20 in long. We were stunned to discover that he was born with Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome. We love him unconditionally from the top of his toe-head to the tips of his toes. We know that this diagnosis will not define him. He is a happy, healthy little boy that just happens to have an extra chromosome.

Follow us on this unexpected and exciting journey as we learn how to live life Will's Way.

I love tulips. I have always loved tulips. Every year on Valentine's day I tell Ron not to bother with over-priced roses...all I really want is white tulips. I even loved tulips when I had to dig up over 20000 bulbs every spring at the park I worked at in Fort Wayne. I love how simple and complicated they are. I love that they are planted as a plain, boring bulb that you don't really expect much from. I love that it is hard to envision what they will look like come spring but that you do it anyway. I love that you have to have a little faith that in the future they will be beautiful:) More so than any other plant, if you are just patient and wait they are even more beautiful than you imagined.
This year tulips have a special meaning to me. I will always look at tulips in a different way because they now remind me of Holland. And of Will. And this makes me happy:)
