The Birthday Girl

And to think we were so full of sorrow when we found out she had Down syndrome in the days before her birth. It makes me sad that my heart was so heavy on what should have been such a happy day. Life certainly did not end when she was born. It seems that it really just began.

  1. Happy Birthday! As you celebrate your daughters life it sounds as if you are also celebrating the birth of your new life and new self. So, Happy new birthday to you as well! My husband and I were looking at Vada this morning while she was sleeping and I said "Can you believe that we were so scared of Down syndrome and what it would mean for us?" If I knew then what I know now I would have been able to celebrate much sooner!


Thanks for your comment! I love mail!
