On October the 16th, 2008 ~ Gavin turned 5 years old! :) It was a great exciting day!!! I brought cupcakes to his class at school, and it was a great time :)
This is a new blog celebrating and noting our journey with our new son Gavin who has down syndrome. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I was scheduled to have a C-section 10/28/08 but when I was just 37.2 weeks I went into labor. Our son Gavin Russell was born 10/16/08 at 11:30 am via C-section. Gavin weighed 8 lbs and 6 oz and was 21 inches long. After Gavin was born and before they tied my tubes we found out about Gavin having down syndrome by the doctors saying " are you sure you want your tubes tied, it looks like he has down syndrome." We were shocked to say the least. I went ahead and had my tubes tied and our journey with DS began. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I know Gavin is a true gift from God and even though I wish with everything that I am that he did not have DS I love him so and will get through this one day at a time.
