Her book, Bloom, was amazing. She’s a true talent and a wonderful spirit. Also: look for her Christmas party from last year!

What a story! How powerful that all was and to have it captured in photos…the look on her face. Wow!

I thought there were tests or something of this nature to confirm this early on, say first trimester or so? Did I miss that part in my quick reading? Or did they opt out of this testing?

@Treejewel19:  She opted out of the testing.  It’s an amazing blog to read.  They are currently expecting their third child, a boy.

I cried while reading this. This is something that no mother thinks she’ll have to deal with, but she has done it beautifully.

I read it all, and it was everything you said.  So very sad, but inspiring as well.  But oh, so many tears.

Thank you for sharing it.

I just bawled like a baby. Seriously. As someone who works with children with special needs, I feel for the parents of my students because I know that most of them probably had a moment like that also. Your world is already changing by becoming a parent, but to have it changed again when you are told that your child has a mental disability or a physical disability has be so completely different. Thank you so much for sharing this!

Chills…the whole time, and tears. I cannot imagine the things that their family went through, and the fact that she was brave enough to say how she TRULY felt just tears at my heart. She was honest, she showed that she is a human being and there was some heartache involved…as there would be with anyone. 

Bless her and her family for being so strong, and loving such a gorgeous and unique little girl. 

@Treejewel19:  There are tests for down syndrome, however it (like every other pre-natal test) is not 100% and sometimes things go unnoticed. As much as we’d all love to think that things are certain when doctors tell us things, they’re not. 🙁

My heart broke, and grew 10 sizes all at once. It’s a heart wrenching, lump in your throat, balling your eyes out at your laptop while your husband stares at you funny kind of read, but so worth it. What a strong woman. I am pregnant right now and if I should be faced with a similar situation I can only hope to be even half as graceful as her.

@MrsSawyer:  My husband just came home, and I tried to tell him the story, cried all over again, and he was like “Uh…why don’t you read happy news?”

The first time I read that blog I got chills and bawled…. Addicted to her blog ever since!! Can’t express how much I admire her and when I think of the kind of mother I would hope to be she immediately comes to mind…. Love to see this posted!

@Quietserenity:  I know! Mr. D was panicked because I was hard, ugly crying and he thought something bad had happened. I couldn’t even tell him the story without getting choked up.
