I've said it before and I'll say it again, when L was born I was scared, really really scared. I searched the internet for information. I looked up Down syndrome related hashtags on Instagram. I watched videos on YouTube, "4 month old with Down syndrome", "5 month old with Down syndrome". I wanted to know what our life would be like. Will we be happy? Will I get to experience those specials moments with her that I had dreamed of?
I was thinking about these things a few mornings ago, how worried I had been, and how life with her has turned out to be everything I had hoped for and more. I decided to make a short video to give others a glimpse into an average day in our lives in case someone else recently received a Down syndrome diagnosis and is searching like I was.
