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

On Her Second Birthday


Nov 30, 2011 ~ Julia's 1st Birthday


My Sweetest Julia,
Today is your second birthday. We are thinking of you so much today (even more than usual!) and missing you tons! We are also celebrating you today. Dad, Syd, and Isaac all took the day off so that we could all be together on your special day.
I know that you would want us to be happy on your birthday even though we are missing you. Because your birth and your birthday should be celebrated, we made a list of things about our time together that we are thankful for.
I am thankful for your smile and that you blessed us with so many of them!
Cohen is thankful that he is your baby brother and that you were the first of his siblings to know he was coming! He also thanks you for all of the fun toys!
Sydney is thankful that you are her sister and that you are a miracle!
Isaac is thankful that you were with us for a whole year and two weeks.
Daddy is thankful for all of the quality late night time you two had together.
Most of all we are thankful to be your family. We love you so much, sweet girl.
Happy 2nd birthday to you. Sending lots of love, kisses, and hugs to you today.

Love you forever,
Mommy

I thank Julia for being such a beautiful star in heaven that reminds us of the joy of loving a child with Trisomy 18, no matter how fragile or brief their life may be. And for the gift of her Mother's friendship.
