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.

To the "strangers"...

For some of the people who have made a huge impact on my life this year...

You have welcomed us into a community family.

You have been honest.

You have been cheerleaders.

You have been a shoulder to cry on.

You have been a soft place to fall.

You have given me points of reference (of greatness).

You have shown me the reality of this journey.

You have selflessly shared personal, intimate thoughts and details about your family and your life so that I could thrive.

You were strangers that quickly became some of my greatest friends.

You have been there in the middle of the day and night.

Some of you knew like us that this would be a part of your life story.  Others were surprised. 

Regardless, our paths have crossed and intertwined and for that I am so incredibly grateful.

Thank you to all my new friends this year.  Whether local or continents away, the footprint you've left in our life story will always be.

Merry Christmas and getting ready for the big 1!
