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

From Sydney



When I first saw Julia, I looked at her and smiled. ''She's cute'' is the first thing I said. I looked at her, my baby   sister, finally, wrapped in a pink blanket! Oh, how adorable she was! As she grew, she got pretty heavy.(At least to me she was.) Her eyes widened. Julia also got bigger of course. I thought her eyes were greenish brown later on. After her 1 year old birthday,I thought all those possibilities, the bad ones, were over. Little did I know, I was wrong. I feel like it's just been so long! Julia is Julia. She loves to touch bumpy stuff like mini pretzels,bracelets, and necklaces. She loves to snuggle! She does big hilarious stretches! When she sneezes, she puts her arm in front of her and then wipes her face and smiles. Boy, she sure likes a bath! Isaac and I both fight over who should pick out Julia's clothes. I love Julia!

Thanks to Sydney for sharing these thoughts and memories. Both of my girls are one in a million.

Sydney, I don't know you, but I know your parents. These memories of Julia are beautiful -- you will cherish them the rest of your life. When you grow up, you'll be so glad you wrote them down.

Fighting over who gets to pick out Julia's clothes...could Sydney and Isaac possibly be taking after their mother?!? Seriously, though, such a sweet post from a sweet big sister.
