I got to meet some of the FB mom group IN REAL LIFE. Complete with babies and hugs.
I have never had a moment like this. I couldn't wait to hug moms and babies that I have watched grow over the past 6 months. I was emotional to think about the journey that we have all traveled together. It was truly amazing to be with people who get it. Who I can post to or message anytime of day or night and feel part of something greater and not so alone in this.
I am so grateful to have met these women and their adorable kids. That they are willing to share all that goes with this with me is something special.
My heart is full.
Full of love for my family for making it possible for us to go and meet these families. (10 hours in the car is no small feat for a family of 6!)
Full of hope that our kids will have such a bright future and that we are never alone in this journey.
Full of faith in humanity as we move forward in this adventure.
Full of memories had and those yet to come.
A lovely mom took some pics of the weekend and I will be checking with the moms to be sure that I can post them here soon. I cannot wait to share with all of you the beautiful kids and families I have come to know all because of this pesky extra chromosome. Until the "official" pics are up, here are a few of O and his buddy N. Blessed to have connected with an awesome mom (who happens to not live too far away!) and getting to spend time with them this weekend.
