Who are the DeStephano's, anyway?!?!

Part 2.

Bryan and I have three children.

Margaret Eden was our first born who stole our hearts from the moment we knew she was on her way. A very sweet and happy baby and toddler. She's now 8 years old and is growing up so fast! She's in 2nd grade this year and LOVES learning. She is very loving, passionate, talented, caring, smart, beautiful, graceful and slightly stubborn (of course....she is my child, after all!) Maggie is wise beyond her years and a bit boy crazy already (Lord, help us!)

She changed.

Wyatt Daniel is our second child who was born only 9 months after our first. He was born at 26 weeks gestation, or 14 weeks premature. He caught us all by surprise (in more ways than you can imagine), but he has fought hard to stay with us from the very beginning. He had a very scary entrance into the world but proved to us all he was stronger than we even thought possible. It is believed that he has a progressive neuro-muscular disease, which causes him to struggle with many different medical issues. We spend much of our time seeing specialty doctors trying to give him the best quality of life possible. He has an infectious joy about him and a genuine LOVE for life...he is very smart and so funny! Wyatt is in 1st grade this year and is enjoying his first year of Cub Scouts.

He taught.

Jilliana Mari is our third child. She was born 3 years after Maggie and Wyatt and was born 6 weeks early. She showed everyone from very early on that she will be doing things her way. She marches to the beat of her own drum, proudly...and yet, she will not be left behind! She is now 4 years old and quite the princess. She enjoys her days with Mommy at home while the big kids are at school. I can think of many words to describe Jilly....spunky, confident, funny, independent, caring, determined, loving, beautiful, smart, and stubborn (and not just a little...she is my child, for sure!)

She healed.
