A Trisomy 18 Journey

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain. -- Vivian Greene

Meeting the Extended Family

Julia is a much loved little girl, especially by her family. While we live in Virginia, all of our family live out of state. Most live several states and many hours away. When Julia was born, many family members raced to Virginia to meet her. As time progressed, more and more family members have had the opportunity to visit. She has now been able to meet all of her grandparents and all of her great-grandparents. She has met all of my siblings and her first cousins on my side. Several second and third cousins as well as great aunts and uncles have made the trip to see her. In addition, many relatives who live near my hometown in Alabama met her while we were there. Having so many of our loved ones meet Julia has meant so much to us. She is obviously a very real part of our immediate family but now she is also very real to our extended family. We are thankful to all who have made the effort to meet our precious girl.

So very loved! She is spoken of daily here in Alabama. Can't wait to see her (and all of you) again!
