Eli had fun at NDSC too (even though a couple of these pictures suggest otherwise 😭) #elienhancesmylife #ndsc2017 #2017ndsc #ndsc #thesullivanfamilyroadtrips
(Disclaimer: no children were in pain or hurt during the taking of this photo😜) Last time we had an appointment at the cardiologist, Eli and I had to leave without an EKG and an echocardiogram because I wasn't strong enough to hold him down, so this time I brought back up 💪🏼 I'm so thankful for Eric and I can't imagine doing life without him. There's a statistic that says that many couples divorce after having a child with special needs, but we've only grown closer and I'm so grateful for all of the ways Eli's strengthened us ❤️ #elienhancesmylife #heartwarrior #downsyndromelove #theluckyfew

So we normally get a picture of Eli at the Old Town Orange tree lighting ceremony with Santa, but this year the line was insane so we decided to see baby Jesus instead. At least his reaction to the manger scene was a little better than his reaction to Santa and Mrs. Claus the 2 previous years 😂#elienhancesmylife

Eli had an audition this morning for a commercial and let's just say it didn't go well. He yelled "no" at the nice people and refused to let them take a picture 😳Oh well. On the plus side we had a fun morning in LA and it's so awesome that a big clothing company is #changingthefaceofbeauty by specifically asking for kids with Down syndrome ❤️ #elienhancesmylife

"Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer."
Hebrews 12:12

This is something I've really struggled with since my accident. Not only was I physically broken but I was mentally, emotionally and spiritually broken too. 
Before my accident I'd say I lived pretty joyful in hope, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer. But something snapped (literally and in every other sense) when those cars crushed me. 
There were dark nights of the soul that I'm not proud of but there is so much grace. 
Choosing to be hopeful, patient in affliction and faithful in prayer in the last few weeks has been an hour by hour choice. 
God has been so faithful and kind to me. He answered a two year long prayer during my "I'm mad at you God" weeks but in His grace, He didn't let me know that is was answered until I surrendered. 
I think I'm ready to set up camp in Camp Hope. Plus these two make me very hopeful for the future #mybrokenmotherhood "What is faith? It is the confident assurance that something we want is going to happen. It is the certainty that what we hope for is waiting for us, even though we cannot see it up ahead."
Hebrews 11:1

Today marks 8 weeks since my accident. There are so many people that have gone above and beyond for me and my family in the last 8 weeks. I can't thank you enough for every meal that was cooked, every ride given to my kids, every person who chipped in to get my house cleaned, every toy brought to keep Eli occupied, every person who came just to hang out with me in the hospital or on my sofa and every text or email to check on me, every person who prayed for my family or offered a kind word of support. I'm a doer and it was very humbling to have to sit there and have everyone else take care of my life. Eric is an incredible husband and literally did everything I use to do including running my business. I so don't know what I would do without him. The hardest part of all of this has been not being able to be left alone with Eli (because I can't pick him up or chase him). It's for sure brought up a lot of mom-failure type feelings that I'm working through still. I'm slowly gaining back strength and it's such a great feeling to hold him when someone places him in my arms. He's been through so many surgeries and physical therapy appointments in his short life. He inspires me to keep working toward my goal of walking. I remember when the doctor said it takes 6-8 weeks to heal I thought "Ok, I'll be walking in 6 weeks" haha! but when I went to my follow up appointment the dr said that it takes 6-8 weeks for the bones to heal. Now it will actually be about another 6 weeks of physical therapy before I'll hopefully be able to walk without crutches or a cane. If you think of me, please pray for my pain. Thank you! 😘 #brokenpelvis #elienhancesmylife #ericenhancesmylifetoo

Eli and I wish YOU a Happy Halloween! #elienhancesmylife
😲Halloween is tomorrow!!!!! Also, random thoughts with Michelle: ➕3 out of 4 TSA workers think the pelvis is located somewhere in your leg. ➕Some people believe that a Halloween costume is equal to an endorsement. Trust me, it's not. ➕When you're pregnant 10 people line up to hold open a door for you even though you have both hands free, but if you're carrying a baby in your arms, or if you have crutches or a walker, 10 people stare at you and watch you struggle to get the door open and walk through it 😂

I took this the morning of the accident. I miss him so much my heart hurts almost as much as the rest of my body. He's too young to come visit me, but I'm trying to think of ways that Eric can smuggle him in past security :) Today has been really hard, my pain has been unbearable and I don't think I can come home as soon as I was hoping. Please pray that I will heal quickly and that my pain will be tolerable enough to come home soon ❤️ #elienhancesmylife

#throwback to minutes old Eli 👶🏼We found out that Eli's intestines were blocked and he had a heart defect at his 20 week ultrasound. The doctors said these signs pointed to Down syndrome and said I can simply go upstairs and "take care of the situation." They rattled off some outdated statistics and told me of a very bleak future. I remember walking out of the office in a daze scanning my brain for someone I knew who has a child with Down syndrome. After a few minutes I was able to remember a sweet family and I was able to connect with them through Facebook and we were able to go over to their house and have dinner and learn all about their life. But what if I couldn't think of anyone? What if a mom gets a diagnosis today and can't think of anyone? My friends from @specialneedsgames have come up with @prenataldiagnosisconnect 
a national network which will match expectant/new mothers with a DS diagnosis to a local family with a child with DS so they can meet them, and see that their lives are beautiful! People will be privately matched and they will have a database of families in different cities who are willing to meet with the mom/family. 
Would you consider signing up to be a contact family for a scared new mom? This is a great way to #shouttheirworth and I truly believe that less babies with a Down syndrome diagnosis will be aborted if we can show the moms the truth of what the future can look like ⭐️ #elienhancesmylife

I haven’t said much about the news regarding “eradicating” Down syndrome like it’s a disease because I have so many thoughts racing through my mind. It is so painful to sit by and watch the world decide if people like my son are worthy of life. 
I’ve had several friends this week either tag me on someone else’s post or private message me about the news asking if I've heard. I know you are well-meaning, I really do. I know it breaks your heart like it breaks mine. But let me ask you this: did you private message your black friends about Charolettesville? I highly doubt it. You were posting on your own wall and letting the world know how outraged you are, and rightly so. 
Can I ask that you would do the same for Eli and people like him? Instead of telling me - because trust me, I know and anyone who has a loved one with Down syndrome knows what's going on - tell other people you know. We don’t need to be convinced of their worth. 
It’s the doctors you know who are telling scared moms to kill their baby because they have any extra chromosome and then give them outdated information and lie to them about what their child is capable of. It’s the people you know who work in government agencies who can be a voice. It’s your family members who grew up in a time when people like Eli were hidden from society and sent away. They are the ones who believe the lies that society tells them like my family member who told me to abort Eli because he’s only going to suffer.  It’s your friends who don’t know anyone with Down syndrome. They are the ones who believe people like Eli are a burden. They are the ones leaving comments like this: "How are they special?..they and their carers suffer their entire life ...then die...if that can be prevented from ever happening again....why would anyone oppose it?"
Please tell them. For me, for Eli, for society. I don’t want to think of a society without Eli and all the amazing people I’ve met like him. 
No one is lucky if #theluckyfew is snuffed out.

Plenty of time to save up! 🌷🙋 In other news Eli likes to run away from photo shoots 😂#downwithjax #elienhancesmylife

We are loving our time at Forest Home! So many adventures to go on as a family like hiking to the lake, but Eli loves to stroll and sit on rocks (and point out every rock 😂) and look for bugs. I love the flexibility here at Forest Home - they have something available to do from the moment you wake up till bedtime, but if you feel like taking time to look for bugs or read a book or take a nap, you totally can. I've been thinking about #soulcare a lot lately thanks to @freedom_movement and @foresthomecamps give so much space for soul care and disconnecting from a hectic life ❤️#elienhancesmylife #foresthome #adventureawaits #vacationwithpurpose #familycamp #thesullivanfamilyroadtrips #theluckyfew

#TBT to when Eli was safe inside. I remember wishing he could stay in there forever. His heart was ok, it didn't matter that his intestines were blocked. He was safe. I remember thinking if he stayed inside he would always be close and I could shield him from a cruel world. A world that viewed him as less than. The future was so uncertain. That's how we all feel in our comfort zone, isn't it? We are so fearful of what might happen, of the pain we might feel. But just like childbirth, change is inevitable and happens whether we agree or not. What would have happened if my wish had come true? Yes, he'd still be safe inside, but we all would have missed out on God's best. When is safe no longer God's best in your life? #elienhancesmylife
