World Down Syndrome Day


To represent the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome.

1 YR ago today we were in a different place.

A place full of worry and tears. This time last year we were still being told that Mason may not survive. He was developing cord pressure problems, but had made it past the 30wk mark! We were praying so hard.

I actually didnt even do a post about world down syndrome day last year because honestly , I had too many things to worry about. Masons cystic hygroma was still a uncertainty and we were just then starting to have hope that he might make it to birth.

Looking back, it was all a blessing in disguise. We didnt worry about the Down syndrome, we just worried about the hygroma. Then when it healed..... we were just so thankful it was healed that the DS still didnt matter. We almost lost our son. If it takes him having DS to be here with us, then that's no problem to us.

So this year we will celebrate World Down Syndrome Day. We will rejoice in advances in care and compassion there is for people with that extra special chromosome. We will rejoice that our Mason is here to celebrate it with us.

Thank you for opening my heart and my eyes sweet baby boy. Momma loves you.
