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

Feb 12


One year ago today I met a beautiful little girl named Isabella. It was her two month birthday, and it had been nearly two months since we lost Julia. Isabella, like Julia, had trisomy 18. They looked very alike. They brought with them similar joys and similar struggles. Seeing Isabella made my heart full, and I loved her immediately. She was so expressive, so spirited, and so lovely. I also met Isabella's amazing parents, Patricia and Randy. Since that day, we have shared happy days and sad days, the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Our little beautiful girls now play together, happy and whole, in a place where all is good. This is a hard and often lonely road that we walk. I am very thankful that if we must walk this road, we can at least do it together.

I know how much it meant for you to meet Isabella and her parents. I also know how much it meant for Erin to meet them. So glad that you have each other. I think of them often and continue to pray for them. xoxo
