The Betrothal

Before Kimani was born, I stressed about such things as whether she might go to college, or get married, or drive a car. My husband, who is the more relaxed of the two of us, was convinced she would do all those things. I let him rest in his denial...

Fast forward a year and a half. Did you know that lots of people with Down syndrome get married, mostly to each other? How fitting that such trusting and guileless people should find love in each other.

There are a lot of boys out there that could end up the lucky man... There’s Finnian, Sheridan, and Charlie just to name a few... but one little guy has already captured this potential MIL’s heart... and his name is Ozzie.

(Those who really know me well are singing... “Oh no, oh no, here we go now....”)

prekissNo, not that Ozzie... this Ozzie.

ozzieOh wait... that was before she kissed him. Here he is in his princely form.

I met his dad out in blogland a while ago. We became friends and since then our families have had the good fortune to be able to meet up in NYC at the Museum of Natural History. It was Kimani and Ozzie’s first date ♥ ♥ ♥ Aren’t they cute together? Don’t you just love how they are checking each other out?


Ok, so she looks a little wary of the situation but we have plenty of time for him to grow on her.

Oh, goodness. You are too funny.

And he IS a prince. That's cool that you guys were able to meet with this family. Amazing things the blogosphere brings into being. :)

I'm so glad you all had a chance to meet. How great!!!

Ozzie is a cutie pie. So handsome.

God bless.

Personally, I think you have fine MIL instincts! Ozzie is indeed a cutie and, just based on his writing, his dad is hilarious! I'm guessing you had a great time. That pic is adorable, btw.

Hey, now. Let's throw Micah in the mix of potential suitors! :-) He'd be blessed to meet such a darling girl!

A match made in heaven! Dan is one of the jewels I have found among the DS online community. That man is just amazing!! Oz has big shoes to fill...but the right man to help him fill them! How lucky you are to live so close!

Hey, hey, hey... Oz is moving in on Sheridan's potential girl! ;-)
