Just wanted to post some pictures of some of the fun things we've been up to this Summer.
Love from Colorado!

On Saturday, August 24, we will be participating in the Colorado Springs Down Syndrome Association Buddy Walk!
We're walking in the Buddy Walk to show my support for the more than 350,000 individuals with Down syndrome in the United States. We want to do our part to make sure that each individual is given every opportunity to reach their full potential.
Every step we take, every dollar we raise will help ensure that each individual with Down syndrome in the United States will be able to do just that. Last year alone, over $6.5 million dollars was raised nation-wide for local and national education, research and advocacy programs.
Your involvement in the Buddy Walk -- by walking with us or by sponsoring one of our family members -- will make steps for a brighter tomorrow for all individuals with Down syndrome.
Thank you for supporting us -- and all individuals with Down syndrome.
Copy and paste this link to our website and you can donate there or join our team and walk with us. There will be free snuggling with Asher for those that do. :) Hugs from the Borkowski's - Asher's Dashers!

|Asher in the Hospital - spent his first week in the NICU.|
|The girls just adore him!|
Yes, Asher has Down Syndrome. Yes, I just said it.... it's kind of like therapy for me the more I say it. At first, I almost couldn't say it. I partially "hid" it from people. Yes, we knew before he was born. We found out late in my first trimester. That's a normal feeling to have isn't it? Yes, part of us hoped that it wasn't true. Yes, we are ok.... just a few questions many people have asked us. And I just want to add, DON'T feel sorry for us. We're not sorry! We are blessed! We asked for a baby boy and the Lord blessed us with this special little miracle to care for. He isn't any different then any other baby. He needs love, food, diaper changes, etc. Mostly, he needs us! Anyone that has come into contact with Asher just falls in love, regardless of his diagnosis, he's a baby first and foremost. We are still new in this journey and feel like we are learning as we go.
If you have questions, please feel free to ask but please don't feel sorry for us. If we haven't talked to you personally and told you please accept our apologies. We just aren't ready to "shout it from the rooftops" just yet. Although there are days that I do feel like that just to get it all out. Right now we are just enjoying our little family that God has blessed us with. We count our blessings every day!
Please pray for Asher and our family (that's the best thing you can do to help)!
Blessings from the Borkowski's!
