Your Face

When I see your face, there's not a thing that I would change, because Max, you're amazing just the way you are!!!!!

Max is doing well, he has now come to each family member by choice, when we call him. 
He seems to be VERY happy.
He loves his brothers and sister.
He loves to be held now, we try to hold him and love on him as much as he lets us. He is a sweet child, and he has a fun personality. He is a beautiful young man, and we are so blessed!
He has such a fun laugh, and a smile that is so contagious. He loves water, all water, when we go out into the rain, he loves to feel it on his face. He loves showers,....and He loves puddles, when he finds them
and can get to them!
He seems to like church, it is so precious, when we are praying at church and at home, he tries so hard to close his eyes. He loves his Wednesday School Class (like Sunday school) He knows right where his class is.
He is such a smart young man, we can not wait to see what God has planned for Max, it is our prayer that Max's life will give God glory!
To have been given the privilege to raise a child that has Down Syndrome has been a huge blessing for us. He is indeed a greater blessing to us, than we could ever hope to be to him.
He is so amazing, I say that a lot, but truly, he is so AMAZING!!
We Love you Max!

The above picture was taken by some sweet friends of ours, they offered to take our first family pictures with Max. They did an awesome job!
Thank You Henson Family!!!
