One Day at a Time


Hi, I’m Amanda and this is my family. My husband Eligio and I have been married for seven years and have three beautiful daughters, all with the initials MJ. There is Madeleine Juliet (4-1/2), Marcie Jean (2-1/2) and Meredith Johanna (6 months). All of our girls were born in Charleston, SC, where I lived for 15 years before recently returning to the state of Michigan to be closer to my family. Our 2-1/2 year old Marcie was diagnosed with Down Syndrome just hours after her birth. Marcie is an extremely fun and social little firecracker. She teaches us to take one day at a time, and that every small accomplishment is a reason to celebrate.
