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.

Will loves to color with Ava!

We may have a lefty on our hands though...

Which is only unfortunate because he is going to struggle with coloring and writing anyway and adding the lefty factor could make it even more difficult.  But Will will be Will and unlike the nuns back in the day I am not going to force him to be a righty:)

He also likes how they taste!

Silly Will!
