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

Because of You

Sydney, Isaac, and Cohen 5/14/2012

Sydney, Isaac, and Julia 12/1/2010

Dearest Julia, Your baby brother has arrived! He came into this world loudly and fiestily (if not a word, it should be for him!). His screams, his kicking feet, his open hands waving about wildly-- a beautiful beginning. We have thought of you nonstop. Cohen is here because of you. He is a continuation of the journey we began with you. It should go without saying that he could never and will never replace you. But because of you and the life we shared with you, we had the hope to keep going. Your inspiration became our inspiration. You left a beautiful legacy in our family in so many ways, and your little brother will always be a reminder of that. You were the first person I told when I found out I was pregnant last fall. I love that you were a part of that process. You were even the one to "tell" your older siblings! You and Cohen are inextricably linked, just like you are with the rest of our family. He will grow up knowing all about you. We miss you immensely but know that you are always with us. We love you forever.
