“When we got a prenatal diagnosis for Down syndrome, I thought it was the biggest thing in the world and that I’d be automatically given a free pass for other hard stuff in life because what could be more difficult than having to raise a child with DS, right? What kind of life would we have and possible medical complications might be ahead of us? Would our marriage survive? Now, after everything we’ve been through, Down syndrome feels like a walk in the park. I know the devastation of being told your baby isn’t going to be who you were expecting, but if I could go back to that 33yo mother expecting her third child, I’d tell her that this kid will always be worth fighting for, that he will bring more amazingness to her life and family than she ever thought possible, that she would go through every single hard bit again just to know him, regardless of his number of chromosomes. That his life is so #worthit”
