Down syndrome seems scary. I'm not going to lie when we found out that our baby girl was going to have Down syndrome I cried. I cried my eyes out. And then I got real and researched. That's what a good mom does is to figure out a way to make it work. If I found out that Harper had a peanut allergy what would I do? Research it and make it work.
I searched the internet for information and support and I came across this wonderful blog community. I haven't met any of these parents and yet I feel like I should have their phone number, sent them a Christmas card, or to meet them for coffee. They know what I am going through. They know what to expect and have suggestions for how I can handle it the best way I can.
My family is supportive but these amazing people in blog land are equally as amazing and supportive. THANK YOU! The emails, posts, and Facebook messages that I have received are overwhelming and I have a feeling that I will receive more in the next week.
Today was hard. My worst so far. But I made it through and plan to keep doing that until I can bring Harper home. The surgery is one week away. By this time next Wednesday I expect my little muffin to be out of surgery and in her hospital room. I know I wont be able to hold her but to just see her will allow me to breath again.
To lighten the mood how about some new pictures of Harper?! Thank you to my bf Kristin for taking these pictures last minute! I love you my real life friend and owe you big time!
