About This Blog

Hi, I’m Cara!

…college professor by day, blogger/photographer by night, and mama to three sweet boys 100% of the time. I’m also married to the greatest guy in the universe who graciously helped me create this blog space (marketer by trade, tech nerd by choice).  

I started this blog 5 years ago as a space to advocate and educate on all things related to Down syndrome, after our oldest child was born and diagnosed with Trisomy 21.  You can read all about his birth diagnosis and our faith journey here.  In those early years, his diagnosis was fresh. It was foreground. But as he’s gotten older and our family has grown (he now has two little brothers who are extra rascally), his diagnosis has become our normal, and more background. It’s definitely still a part of the fabric of our family, but I don’t think about it as much as I used to.  Thus, I don’t write about it as much as I used to!  

You can still find all of my original “Confessions of a Rockin’ Mom” by starting here and plenty of additional information about Down syndrome by clicking on “Down syndrome” in the menu above. And there’s more to come! But this new and improved blogosphere now includes posts about recipes, favorite products, travel experiences, holidays, photography, etc.

In other words, life with Down syndrome…just seems like life to us.  Thank you for stopping by our little corner of the internet, I hope you enjoy reading through my content as much as I enjoyed creating it!
