In 2007 I learned that my baby girl would have Down syndrome. I was so unsure and scared about what this would involve. I cried many tears. The last almost three years have been full of highs and lows and another diagnosis on top of the Down syndrome (Infantile Spasms). It is today, however, that I think about the Down syndrome and remember how it entered my life because of a beautiful little girl named Quinn. Quinn is the best daughter I could have wanted or asked for - she is my everything. There are points of clarity and I know that Down syndrome has made me a better person. It has taught me so much and helped me meet such beautiful people that I would not have otherwise met in the world. Today I actually celebrate Down syndrome - something I was so unsure about in 2007.
This blog is about our journey raising three bright, gorgeous kids (Riley, Aidan, and Quinn). Miss Quinny happens to have an extra 21st chromosome (Down syndrome) along with Infantile Spasms (West syndrome) and Stereotypic Movement Disorder. This blog is for awareness and advocacy for families with children with special needs.
