Brooklyn is such an inspiration and has touched so many people. God has truly blessed me.
I found out during my first trimester of pregnancy that my princess would be born with Down Syndrome. It was really hard to accept and I was very confused. I wondered what I did wrong? Was I going to be a good enough mother? Will she be able to lead a typical life? So many unanswered questions.
My doctor at the time, tried to convince me to have an abortion. I couldn’t believe a professional would suggest doing so based on the fact that she felt my blessing wouldn’t be worthy of life. I changed doctors right away.
Although my pregnancy was stressful and caused me some anxiety and depression. I knew that my baby girl was a blessing and would change my life forever.
Brooklyn is such an inspiration and had touched so many people. It has been an up and down journey so far but I’m looking forward to the rest of my life with her.
She had open heart surgery and struggles with other things, but Brooklyn is definitely a fighter. God has truly blessed me. Thank you for allowing us to share our story.
