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.

Mommy's New Adventure - Part One

Mommy's New Adventure

In a busy year, I have felt a calling.  A calling to DO SOMETHING.

The first is a project that started simmering a year ago.  My dear new friend, Joelle, from across the pond and I got an idea to write a book.  We wanted there to be a resource for new moms that wasn't just all the beautiful parts of having a kiddo with DS (there are LOTS of those things!) but also the realities of the feelings and emotions that come with this journey.  Now, a year and almost 100 families later, we have a book, website and facebook page!


{Unexpected} is a collection of stories that include real-life accounts from families who have received a diagnosis of Trisomy 21 (Down syndrome).  Families from around the world share what it was like for them to receive a prenatal, birth, or uniquely timed diagnosis, and those families with a potential but unconfirmed diagnosis share their experiences as well. Readers will follow along as the contributors describe the many facets of their diagnosis experience and the range of emotions that came with it.
