It's A Small World

It has been great fun for me to write down my thoughts and to be able to share them with family and friends. But I had no idea that so many would visit. Not only has having John been a learning experience for us but writing this blog and keeping up with people who have visited and from where has also been a learning experience.

To date, this blog has had visitors from 36 countries. One of our goals in writing this blog has not only been to share our experience with others, but also to provide a little insight from a more therapeutic perspective. I hope that we have been an encouragement, I know that you all have been to us. Below are the countries that have visited:

United States / Canada / United Kingdom / Australia / Ireland / Malaysia / Egypt / India / Singapore / Norway / Brazil / France / Germany / Costa Rica / Sweden Switzerland / South Korea / Mexico / Philippines / Puerto Rico / Columbia / Japan Netherlands / Nigeria / Sudan / Oman / United Arab Emirates / Peru / Kuwait / Chile / Venezuela / Namibia / Croatia / Maldives / Greece.

Keeping up with the different countries that have read this blog has been both exciting and an education for us. Thank you very much for reading and we invite you to say hello the next time that you are at this site.

We are reminded of the fact that even though we are from different parts of the world, we deal with a lot of the same issues and we can learn from the experience of others.

Here I am from boring ol' Illinois! I'm not that blog-savvy. What do you use to find where the visits are coming from?

I see John is wearing a Cardinal shirt. Would that be the St. Louis Cardinals??? Until moving to Chicagoland 5 years ago, I lived in St. Louis.

Hi, you can add Norway to your list! We live in Norway, and I have a soon-to-be 9 year old daughter with DS. I've been following your blog since John was born.

Congrats on your beautiful little boy! We are in Colorado, and also knew before birth (at around 20 weeks); our little dynamo is now 5 years old, and also has very few health problems associated with the extra chromosome. (He did have a minor ASD and VSD but they resolved with just oxygen for 9 months; he has sleep apnea even after getting tonsil and adenoids out, but that's relatively minor...) He has a big brother who adores him, and whom he adores. This is the first I've seen your blog, but will have to check it out.
