Thanks so much for sharing the joy of Parker. I teach special needs children and am so very grateful for all the ways they, and their families, have touched my life and taught me.
Oh, thank you for sharing. I needed the reminder of that perfect love of God to each of us – and that is how I need to love my sweet girls. Even when they aren’t being so sweet.

Parker’s story is a beautiful illustration of how Christ must love us.
Thanks for sharing!
What a wonderful story and tribute, children with special needs – and those who care for them – have much to teach us about love and life.

“Parker is like a taste of what happens when the love God puts in each of us is untouched by the sin of the world, how beautiful that love was created to be.”
So beautifully said! I feel the same way about my 17 year old profoundly disabled daughter. She is perfection in the eyes of God! Thank you for this wonderful witness.
What a wonderful post and a refreshing reminder of how children are a delight!
Tammy and Parker says
I just discovered your post. It is simply beautiful.
I miss you more than words can say. I miss working so closely with you. I miss your spirit.
We have so many tests starting this month for Parker and then a surgery on 12.16, with yet another round of testing to follow on the 17th. As usual we are asking for prayers for both Parker and his medical team.
The Down syndrome, ostomy bag, tubes and cords have NEVER been an issue.
The only thing we have ever felt deep sorrow for is the possibility of losing this most amazing of little souls. All we’ve ever wanted is to be able to keep him with us, to watch him grow up and become the man we know he has the potential to be.
Tammy and Parker, I am praying for y’all.

Beautifully written, beautiful pictures…and most of all, beautiful, sweet Parker. Sooooo nice to see someone who is not a special needs mama really see the pristine beauty in these children. I see it every day in my daughter’s face & only hope that other people can look past the disabilities to see the beauty, love, strength & trust. Thoughts & prayers to Parker.
