We were praying for baby Gabriel whilst he was in his mother’s womb, as he had been diagnosed with spina bifida and had an operation in-utero. Baby Gabriel was born in January, but is only now full term. He is now at home happily feeding and growing and bringing much joy to those around him.

Baby Gabriel has a cast on his legs, to treat dislocated hips and clubbed feet. Please pray for ongoing healing of his hips and feet and for a continuing improvement in the movement in his legs. Pray for the doctors who are treating him to be guided as to the best course of treatment. Pray for the family as they take baby Gabriel to all his hospital appointments.

May God bless baby Gabriel!


Last Wednesday was World Down Syndrome Day 2018.

This video is a carpool karaoke style lip sync video in support of World Down Syndrome Day featuring 50 mums and their children singing along to Christina Perri’s multi-platinum selling track, “A Thousand Years”.

The mums are all part of a Facebook group known as “Designer Genes” created for parents who have a child with Down’s Syndrome born in 2013/14. They got together to show the world just how ordinary and fun life with the condition is and how they #wouldntchangeathing.
