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.

We Are Back!

I can't believe it has been so long since I posted!  I have been a busy mama and this fell on the back burner.  Sorry to all who followed us for so long.
I know at least one person that will be happy we are back...he happens to be Will's godfather...but I am curious who else checks in on Will's blog?  Let me know via a comment if you still stop by the blog.
Which brings me to my second point...I had to change the settings on the comments since I had a 'sicko' make a comment about a picture.  So not only did I remove the pic, but I will now have to review your comment before it is posted.  Since only Gaga and Papa Brough and Uncle Ricky make comments though, this shouldn't be too annoying for most:)
So back to why I am here...Will!  Will is doing well.  He is doing great in school and trying some new activities out of school.  Still going to weekly therapy and busy being an ornery little 4 year old boy!  Since June he has had a lot of fun stuff happen in his life...he was ring bearer in his Uncle Ricky's wedding, walked the whole way in his 5th Buddy Walk, celebrated his birthday, Christmas & New Years with family, has taken music class and swimming lessons and enjoyed playing in the snow this year.  This winter has been challenging though, as we have been sick, but we are excited for spring to be here so we can get out and play!  Will loves to be outside!
I will try to be better about posting, if I think there are enough people checking in on us...other than Uncle Ricky!  :)
