Over the last two weeks, I have prayed harder and wished for strength more than any other time in my life as Jay and I received news every expectant parent dreads. While we were happy to learn we are having a baby girl, we are deeply saddened to receive a diagnosis of Down syndrome.
We are hopeful to carry the baby to term but still have so many questions and fears yet to be answered. Thank you to all of our wonderful family and friends for your continuous support through this difficult week. We really are blessed with such a wonderful support system.
Jay and I have felt many emotions lately. Anger, fear and sadness. We have mourned the baby we aren't going to have and looking forward to the baby we are going to have. As well as the new journey ahead.
I thought it would be best to write about our journey in this blog to share our story and to keep everyone informed of the progress our sweet baby girl is making. We ask that you keep us in your thoughts and prayers for a healthy baby girl come September.
