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

The Third

Dear Julia,
Today is your third birthday!
I think often of all the fun things three year olds can do and I miss you.
I then think of how precious three year olds with trisomy 18 are and I miss you.
We miss out on so much not having you here with us.
But today we choose to celebrate you on your third birthday.
 Although you are never far from our thoughts and always in our hearts, 
today we will remember you and the life we shared with you; 
we remember what you taught us and the gifts you gave us, 
and we will cherish being together as a family.
There will be birthday balloons, purple flowers, and miniature cupcakes.
That's what we would do with you here, too -- celebrate you and us. 
We love and miss you. Sending you many hugs and kisses.

Happy birthday, dear Julia, happy birthday to you.
