prenatal test

‘I’m sorry, your son has Down syndrome. You have 2 weeks to make a decision…’ Oh, my Grady, NO prenatal test could predict your heart of GOLD.’: Mom celebrates the beauty of Down Syndrome in stunning photo shoot

“I was 21 weeks pregnant. Grady’s tiny feet were kicking in my belly as my husband grabbed my hand so we could sit down. I’ve relived those words over and over again in my mind; they burned deep into my motherly soul. It was THAT very moment my son was named a ‘decision’ and ‘broken’ to the world, and also the day we named him a gift from God.”

‘I started to panic. I told my friend we were having this child regardless. ‘Would you really?,’ she responded.’: Mom grateful for taking the ‘scenic route’ with son diagnosed with Down syndrome

“I was home alone. I completely broke down after this phone call. A part of me believed he didn’t have it. Maybe a part of me just wished he didn’t have it. ‘Look at him,’ my husband told me. ‘Think of how hard he fought to be here. He is the best thing to ever happen to us, and we have this under control.’ As long as we all had each other, we would live the best life – and I believed him.”
