Magic Marker Monday - For Elliot


Photobucket

Our daughter, Nora, is quite talented artistically. She forever tells me that she will help Elliot and “He can be as good as me, mommy.” I told her of Magic Marker Monday, and mentioned that I would be working with Elliot weekly on his art. She said that she’d like to display this recent masterpiece for him, in honor of him in fact.

Nora has such a big heart.

The unicorn really works here, you see.

For, as she stated, “Elliot is unique; he has Down syndrome which makes him different; but, it is better to be different than just like everyone else.”

Just like the unicorn.

It is typical like a horse, but “Mom, it flies and has such a lovely horn.”

“Wouldn’t it be great if Elliot could fly?”

People sometimes worry how having a child with Down syndrome will affect the other children. All they need to look at this picture and the story behind it to know that their sibling is not a burden but a blessing. My oldest daughter also sees the benefits! They often help us to see even more of the blessing we have received!

Stay cool! We aren't much cooler here in Kansas!

Oh, Michelle -- I think Nora could take her pick as either an artist or a poet! This is just the sweetest post I've seen all day :)

Nora's picture is just lovely, and her heart is beautiful beyond words.

What a sweet soul she has..I have tears in my eyes. The siblings of kids with disabilities are those that I pray will be a bright light in the next generation.
