    Oh my gosh, Bristol, what a sweet story. Thank you for sharing. All God’s children are perfect. Especially the one’s with an extra chromosome. They teach us what real love is. Trig has brought so much joy into your lives. He is perfect.

  • Very nice! Wanted to make me cry too…love it.

    Bristol, Thanks for posting this video. It was touching to my heart. I too had a daughter with Downs syndrome, and I know you have a cute little brother that is special also. I admire your mom very much for so many reasons. I have her books and enjoyed them a lot. In fact, I think your whole family is really neat. Watched the Alaska series, and have routed for you on DWTS. You and your adorable little boy are a treat to see in your blogs, and pictures. Just wanted to say my daughter was a beautiful gift from God and I feel b lessed that He entrusted her to our family. She taught me so much. I was only 20 when she was born and it took me a few years to appreciate and accept what God wanted to do in my life. God doesn’t make mistakes. She went to be with Jesus two years ago and we miss her so much. Trig is so cute and I know he is having a wonderful life with a family that truly loves him. God bless you in all you do.

  • Bristol,
    You are so right klenix is required. Such an amazing story. Thank you for sharing it with us.

    So sweet! There is absolutely something special about DS children. Every picture I see of your brother or any other precious child, my heart smiles and I can’t help but grin from ear to ear. Trig is more than lucky to have your family in his life. He will shine and make further imprints on the world. I know your mom is proud of all of you, especially him.

  • Martha

    That was an wonderful story. It really puts things in perspective. I really liked how the father discovered that its not about his image of himself that’s important. His love for his daughter was more important. Trig is a lucky guy to have a wonderful sister like you. And great parents too!

  • Tammy Zydonis

    WOW!! That was beautiful!! I bawled too!!! 😀

  • CJ

    This has to be one of the most beautiful videos I have ever seen. As I sit here wiping up the tears, I am also reminded of the video you blessed us with by Rick Santorum and your mama’s heart wrenching, emotional, loving words about your precious brother, Trig, in her video. The world desperately needs to see and hear these testimonies. They’re exquisite!
    They reach hearts and are so profoundly touching. It is my fervent prayer that these precious children open the hearts and minds of those who cannot comprehend the real essence of what TRUE, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE is.

    GOD BLESS YOU for sharing yet, another beautiful story with us. 🙂

    Sending much Love to you and your family, always…….OXO

    What a beautiful story! Thank you so much for sharing it.

    Bristol, thanks so much for sharing their lives with us! (As I wipe away the tears!) A good friend of mine & her husband have three children they birthed, and three children they adopted: Haiti, Ethiopia, and they just got home about a month ago with their precious little daughter from China with DS, which they requested! Another friend & her husband have ten children (some adopted but not sure how many), and they just got their approval to travel to China to bring home their TWO adopted children, both with DS! They last child they birthed has DS, so they adopted a child the same age with DS (now three years old). They will have 12 children, four with DS! Both of these are remarkable families! They are now friends on FB as they share so many of the same experiences! God bless you & your family!!!!

    Paisley’s dad is a real man. So is Todd Palin and all other dads of these special angels. That is why God trusted them with these beautiful children.
