A while back I posted about the Maddex family, who are active in the Down syndrome community here in Charlotte and are in the process of adopting a boy with Down syndrome from the Ukraine, their fourth child (and second with Down syndrome). Well, they have made it to the grand finale in their adoption journey, and have been in the Ukraine for about two weeks, since early August 2011, visiting with Danil, or as his family and caregivers call him, Danila. He is so so sweet and their story just gets better every day. Please take a moment to read about their journey at www.addingtothemaddness.blogspot.com.
I know I am late to the party in terms of posting about this, but try to read from the beginning. There are a whirlwind of emotions involved on all sides, and some great tales to be told. It is very engaging reading, whether you have kids or not. So stop Twittering your life away and read it — fascinating stuff!
