My Light at the End of a Tunnel
My Light at the End of a Tunnel

My life changed completely the day God blessed me with my Erycka Redding with Down syndrome on December 9, 2008. My world came back to life the day she entered it. She is the sun in our lives - no day is ever the same, and everyday is a new chapter. She is the baby of eight kids, and she's the queen in the house. Everyone learns from her; she is our role model. Our bad days quickly turn to good days the minute she walks in a room. There is nothing too big or too small that she can't do. My family has become one with her being the locking link. We love this girl more than life itself and wouldn't change her or have it any other way. Thank you God for our life of joy with baby Erycka.
