I will never forget the words that my doctor said when I went to him after our NT Screening with our 1 in 5 risk of a child with Downs Syndrome. He said, "This will be the best baby you ever have"...and he was right. When Jackson was born, everything changed and I cannot imagine a life without him in it. We may have our own challenges, but he is the most amazing thing Adam and I have ever done.
Today, I have taken a break from looking to the future and worrying about appointments, or schoolwork, and I've allowed myself to sit back and remember and reflect upon the last year. To paraphrase a dear friend, "Having kids is almost painful, you love them so much."
So today, we allowed ourselves to be in the moment, see the curiosity and wonder through Jackson's eyes.
