This blog is about all the extra wonderful and unique happenings in the lives of my family members. Living abroad, pregnancy abroad, and especially about the newest addition to our family: our wonderful daughter, Anne Kathleen. Annie, as we call her, was born on April 1, 2011 in Rome. Annie was born with an extra chromosome – which we think is pretty darn special – and was diagnosed at birth with Down Syndrome, Trisomy 21.  We’ve learned so much and experienced so much since then. She’s brought us so much joy, we thought we’d share some of it with all of you. Your thoughts, comments, and questions are extra welcome.
