Friday Fotos: Kelle Hampton

by Cat on July 9, 2010

I’ve been following Kelle Hampton’s blog, Enjoying the Small Things ever since the birth of her daughter Nella…   You’ll have to visit to experience it fully (and if you do, click on the “start here if you’re new“).  She is a true triumph and I’ll never forget her first photos of having just given birth to her daughter.  She knew almost instantly that her baby had down syndrome and the photos captured her joy, raw fear and confusion at their greatest heights.

Just last night I re-visited her blog and her latest post was a wonderful update, saying she floats happily now…still aware, but floating on happiness.  And the most current photo (at bottom) of Nella says it all.  What an inspiration. 

Have a happy Friday and weekend everyone!

I also love Kelle’s blog! I was 3 months pregnant when she posted Nella’s birth story. I remember sitting and crying over how beautiful her story was. I am a school psychologist, working with kids with all kids of difficulties. I also have personal experience with both cognitive disabilities and autism in my own family. I love watching Nella grow through Kelle’s photos!
