Dear 2015 Diany,

Hi, it’s 2017 Diany. At this moment, Lili is falling asleep and I just wanted to tell you a couple of things about her. Right now, you are crying in front of the Statue of Liberty because the news was confirmed, Liliana is a girl and she has Down syndr...

Dear Me,

I know you just got that awful phone call.  The one that told you the news you didn’t want to hear.  Your sweet, unborn baby, the baby you’ve dreamed of your whole life, has Down syndrome.  You don’t even know if it’s a boy or a girl, but you know there’s an ex...

Dear Me,

Congratulations on your beautiful baby girl, Norah! Goodness are her cheeks the cutest, chubbiest little cheeks I have ever seen! 

I know the pediatrician gave you some extremely unexpected news, and you're scared out of your mind right now. I know you can'...

Dear Me,

I see you, walking into the ob-gyn office without a care in the world. At 14 weeks pregnant, you're glowing and feeling happy. I watch you settle into the exam room and see your surprise when a doctor other than the one you were expecting walks in the room. B...


Dear Me,

So, you’re mad.  I get it.  You just had a baby, people are crying, and this isn’t exactly what you had planned for the first moments of her life, let alone for her whole entire future.  John just told you that he won’t ever get to walk her down the aisle, a f...

Dear 2016 Me,

You are about to go through the hardest labor you can imagine and give birth to your long awaited son. After minutes of silence, you’ll hear crying and exclaim, “My baby! My baby! Oh my God, that’s my baby!” You’ll be on heavy, heavy drugs and the room wil...

Dear Tina,

I wanted to let you know that something is going to happen later this evening that is going to shock and stun you, so brace yourself. Remember that blood test you took on Monday to check for chromosomal abnormalities because you’re ten weeks pregnant? That t...

I can’t help but sit here and rock Kaleb just a little bit longer as I think back on this day two years ago. September 3rd, 2015. Tonight I sit here cuddling him as we share in a few last smiles and giggles, and I can’t help but think of the difference in two years.

It...

Dear Beth- 2 ½ years ago,

Oh girl…… I want to hug you and shake you at the same time.  I want to tell you know how silly you are being. Really? Your first thought is that her Daddy will never walk her down the aisle? Really, IF she chooses to get married, then she will...

Dear Me,

It's been a little over four years since THAT day, you know which day I'm talking about.  Four years since you delivered your son who, shockingly, unexpectedly, was also born with a little something extra. 

Do you remember four years ago how you cried for...
