"I remember being caught totally off guard... I sat in shock numb to the unknown. I may have even cried then but I can’t remember. I remember reading a message from a mother who has a baby with Down syndrome and her words to her husband were, “why not us?” Every time I questioned why this was happening to us, I would follow it up with, “why not us?” My baby is 1 and I can’t imagine her any other way nor would I want her to be any other way.


You can do this mama. Nothing in life gets easy we just have to know how to handle the harder better. It may be hard but watch how you will be blessed to handle the harder better."
