    Thank you so much for sharing and being honest with your feelings as this is such a tough conversation and something many do not want to discuss or admit. You will be wonderful parents and I pray God blesses your growing family! God is good and never gives you more than you can handle. Xoxo

You are so strong and I can’t wait to follow along on your new adventure with her. Sending so much love and hugs! <3 Laura

  5. Amber says:

    I’ve always said that God hand picks the strongest people to be blessed with his extra special babies. Sending prayers and positive vibes for the rest of your pregnancy and your labor. Once you see her all those worries will fade. Every child is absolutely perfect in their Mother’s eyes❤️

  6. Liz says:

    Thank you for being so open and vulnerable. You are touching lives. We (my husband and i) are going through some pretty intense infertility stuff and I’ve just found so much adoration for those of us going through stuff and being so open and raw. Wishing you & your family and little miss all the love 💕

  7. Brittany says:

    Thank you for sharing your story with everyone. It’s not easy being that vulnerable. I had a difficult pregnancy up until the day my son was born. My doctor was telling me that I could have a stillborn, because of some issues I was having. It was extremely nerve wracking, and all I wanted to do was lock myself in house and cry. But my son is here and I couldn’t imagine life without him. I truly empathize with you. You and you’re husband are going to be amazing parents to your extra special little girl. I can already tell how much love you have for her. I can’t wait to see all of your Disney and Target trips with her!

  8. Arlene says:

    Praying for you and your family. I know this won’t be easy but you got this! I don’t personally know you but I see strength, courage and love-all great things you will need for your daughter. You seem to have a great support system and that just means more people to love her!
    I have two grandsons (3 year olds) who both were diagnosed with autism. It wasn’t a easy diagnoses for the parents to accept but they too are strong and are using all resources available to them.
    Looking forward to seeing you and your husband as parents to this wonder blessing of yours.

  9. Allison says:

    My cousin has Down syndrome. He has done special Olympics, lives in a group home, and is in his 40s. I am sure my aunt went through many hardships, but I also know such great love from my cousin.

    I really appreciate that you talk about grieving the future you imagined, while also having hope for what’s to come. I know it’ll be magical.

  10. Sara says:

    She will be beautiful. I understand all these trials you are experiencing. Last year at my autonomy scan, they found abnormalities in my daughters heart. I went through all the same testing and questions and waiting and concerns. When I got the diagnosis my daughter would have a very severe heart defect, my world shattered. She had surgery the day she was born and will have many more in life. So I understand how you are feeling. I’m here if you have any questions or need some love. I know how important that can be. I will pray for you, for your strength, and for your beautiful daughter. All my love.

  11. Kate says:

    Wow! What a beautifully honest and vulnerable post. I find it so meaningful that you acknowledge your feelings. All feelings are valid and important (I find we often can get caught in a cycle of positivity, but naming how we are feeling is powerful and healthy).
    I was lucky enough to meet you gals at Disney Springs over Princess weekend. Just from that short encounter, I know how incredibly kind and lovely you are! Your little gal had such an amazing Mom ❤️ Cheering you on!!

  12. Katelyn says:

    Your post brought me to tears – both good and sorrowful. While I may not going through a similar situation, I absolutely empathize and sympathize with your stresses and fears right now. You and your wonderful family to be will be in my prayers, and my God bless you on your journey.

  13. Lauren Russ says:

    Even on the toughest days, remember, you are the perfect Mommy and parents for her. You were hand picked to give her a special life. She’s very lucky to have you. The love you’ll have for her is indescribable and unconditional.

  14. Mallory says:

    Reading this brought tears to my eyes and while I cannot relate, my heart aches for you. I will be praying for you, your husband and your precious baby girl. I wanted to offer some of the verses that bring me comfort in times of trial in hopes that they may also bring you some comfort, peace, and strength to keep going even when you don’t understand the “why” for your current trial or circumstances.

    “And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose” Romans 8:28

    “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.“ Philippians 4:13

    “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
    ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭29:11‬

  15. Johanna says:

    How lucky is your baby girl, indeed! To have a Mom and a Dad that already care so deeply enough about this little baby. She is going to be the best and most special thing that ever happened to you, and God chose you as her Mommy. And God would never give you what you couldn’t handle. Blessings to you!

  16. Erica Ellis says:

    Such a honest & beautiful post. She is so very loved, I know that just reading your words.
    Life is tough sometimes, especially when you’re faced with something very unexpected.
    When I was diagnosed with a very aggressive breast cancer at 36 I was totally numb & confused & mad & didn’t understand how this could have happened.
    I let it all go to God. Whatever I faced, I placed it at his feet & prayed for guidance to lead me to the right doctors, help me make the best decisions for me & my family. Once I truly did that, I found peace & that’s when I was able to dig deep to start the fight I needed to get through chemo, surgery, all while still working, being a wife & mom. It was rough, but we made it. I’ve been in remission since Aug. 2019 & that’s where I plan to stay.
    I pray you have found that same peace & pray for the rest of your pregnancy & your sweet magical girl. 💖✨

    I pregnant with twins. My genetic test came back good but they found something on one of their hearts yesterday. We won’t know much til next visit. I feel all the same ways you did and then I feel terrible for feeling that way too. My husband and I haven’t told anyone yet since we don’t even know much. Thank you for putting your story out there. I remembered reading it the day you did..
