Over time we realized that exercise was his weapon to fight depression. Today she is a beautiful, loving, healthy child that brings out the best in us every day. She is now 19 years old, beautiful, charming and a joy to me and to her 2 sisters who are 21 and 17. He understands you, but he has a hard time expressing himself. Thank you for sharing your story and for providing such good information on your site. We held each other and cried, overwhelmed at the faithfulness of our Father to answer our prayers.
If you're new here, I'd love for you to sign up for our posts by email so we can. But I know the daddy of our babies, and I know he loves them with all his heart. Never tell God what He is capable of doing. Despite all that had just happened in the last few minutes, she was so happy. Shelly visits your website frequently. None of that mattered; God had planned for us to meet our baby boy on May 11. I had to also think of the safety of the other children because my son could throw larger objects…another issue not exclusive to a kid like him.
This was a birth, not a funeral. And to hear the mother testify in church about the 29 year old and how the doctors placed him in her arms telling her not to expect much out of him will bring tears to your eyes and chill bumps on your body. Our pediatrician sat there with us for a little while longer, and told us a few things about what to expect, and what the next steps were. There were a few puffy eyes, but mostly it was pure happiness. What has been my biggest blessing is that I had my child at a point in history when I had access to numerous resources created by positive parents and organizations. He is the most well behaved, laid back little guy ever and is so cute and cuddly.
But I kept envisioning another baby, the one who I felt had died the moment I realized this baby wasn't what I expected. He tests about 1-2 years. Your story was so similar to ours that I just wept the entire time I read it. After my alarm went off, I went immediately to the restroom, got back into bed and prayed over the results with my Brian, my husband. My sister came across this site and sent it to me. I did not want to leave her so I asked if the test coul be done that same day so I can take her home with me so they called a child cardiologist from San jose Ca who was so kind to drive to Watsonville were we were he say she looked Ok and felt I was able to care for her better then the hospital staff I guest He was able to see my love for her.
My wife starts to cry. My wife and I are also the proud parents of beautiful Down Syndrome child. My son is my joy n rock. Thank you for giving us a voice and thank you for your optimism. I cried more tears in that time than I have in my whole life, but we made it.
Mt elder daughter was 2 years old and I had forgotten what it was like to hold a new born. My nurse friends, Dot and Katie, stayed on either side of the bed. He had worked for the Special Olympics for 3 years and was extremely adamant that I discontinue the pregnancy. A diagnosis can send someone into a state of grief and depression. I got the same reaction from the nurses in the delivery room until my doctor told them that I was aware of the diagnosis. Thank you again for sharing your experience! However, I want to tell you, according to your blood test, your child has a 1 in 6 chance of being born with Down Syndrome. Get a blanket cover them up just so.
Thank you Rozie for giving me that gift. Hi, your story was amazing and made me tear up like crazy… U guys are just awesome parents and have a super awesome baby — Noah is a very lucky little boy to have such fantastic parents — May the Lord Bless Ur family a million fold. Cried out in prayer, because that was all I could do. In fact, we had to return a week later so that he could repeat what he said the week before. McCartney had said, Christina pities us for not having the purity of heart to see what she sees. He needs to look at her for who she is, not her diagnosis. I am following therapies sessions of Noah because there is no help like this in my country.
Thank you for sharing your story. The one I thought about when people told me how beautiful that belly was. My son is now 17 years old and he is a wonderful human being. I am sending you a picture of my dear niece Isabel, she is 7 years old, sweet girl and very inteligent too, she can speak and understand English, Spanish and sign language very good, she is the best gift God have gave us, she has a 4 years old sister and she have learned very much from her, Ma. But what an inspiring story! At times, it feels like it took us a thousand years to get here. Only blessings to you and your sweet little son!!! No mommy should have to see her baby be pricked on and prodded to this extent.
