A beautiful gift of love and time…

is here.  It’s from CJ, one of my very early inspirations when I was thinking about beginning a blog.  And now, she’s inspiring me all over again, with her wonderful and creative way of reaching out across our nation and the world to spread Down syndrome awareness.

What am I talking about?

It’s a T-21 Afghan.  Not THE T-21 Afghan, which I’m sure will find it’s way to us soon enough, but our very own version of the afghan, which we have to keep.

Go here to join the Traveling Afghan project.

Go here to see where it’s been, and where it’s going.

And I leave you with this:  one little boy, loving the love.

    I can’t wait for THE T21 afghan to hit Illinois. It’s supposed to be soon. I am looking forward to seeing Lily all snuggled up in it!

    Gosh, Jen…Avery is so cute and so grow(ing) up! With a sweet smile to go with his big boy looks. The afghan is lovely, of course…looking forward to welcoming THE afghan to hot, humid Miami (we’ll have to crank the AC)!
