I met Grace's mommy when my six-year-old, Ellie, was just a baby. At that time, Kelly and her husband were adopting their first child with Down syndrome from Eastern Europe. Kelly ended up being Ellie's nanny for several years until they moved to Minnesota.
And over those several years, they went on to adopt three more beautiful girls, bringing their total to four sweeties with Down syndrome! Grace and her mama are visiting DC this week, and asked me to grab a few photos. Grace is tagging along because she has some significant health needs, so she's with her mom just about 24/7.
