Two years ago on December 26th, our lives changed forever after receiving a phone call. It was the call telling us that our unborn son had Trisomy 21-Down syndrome. Unfortunately I remember everything about that sad day. So many tears were shed until I didn't have any left. Our lives seemed to stop while everyone else just kept on living theirs.
But now, how something so wonderful could come from such a sad day is truly amazing. Never in a million years could we imagine the blessing we were about to receive.
Funny how one phone call temporarily "ruined" our lives, "ruined" our Christmas but little did we know, it was actually going to change it for the better.
So we're 2 years into our "new normal" and it's not what we expected. Not even close. We have this perfect little boy now to cherish today, the 26th of December. Somehow through everything with him, he brings us happiness.
That call was a blessing in disguise.
I thank my God every time I remember you.
