Our journey through a prenatal Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome) diagnosis and beyond

I wish it were possible to recognize at the beginning of our life’s story what an incredible journey we are truly on. If so, I would have sat down years ago and begun documenting all the ordinary and extraordinary events in this amazing life I have been blessed with. Sometimes, though, it may take just one more thing to open your eyes into the beauty of the life you have led and causes you to pause and truly count the blessings that are now so many they will never be enumerated.

If you are just joining us, please go back to September 2012 to get caught up.

Could this day get any better?!?!?

Well, the little guy is a boob man! He latched on right away and nursed for 10 minutes. We weighed him before and after and he had taken 15 of his 20 ml!! AMAZING!!

I also got to be there when the docs rounded and they are pleased with his progress. He is off the billi lights which is also wonderful because we can hold him more!! They are hoping that will also help the progress with his oxygen as well, which appears to be his remaining issue/concern.

Wow! Our prayers have been answered over and over. Prayers for a fourth baby. Prayers for a healthy little one. Prayers that his heart would be ok. Prayers that he would arrive safely.

Thank you to all those praying alongside us; it truly makes a difference.

  1. Yay for nursing successfully! He's so handsome. I hope you are able to take him home soon.


I'd love to hear from you!
