Why I blog?
I blog to advocate for my son Grady. To share what our life looks like: the good, the bad, the real, the truth. To shatter misconceptions.
I blog so that hopefully through divine appointment I am able to share the right words, at the right time, with the right woman with a big decision on her hands regarding her pre-natal diagnosis. I blog for her and for her unborn child. I am praying for that mom right now.
I blog because just a picture on facebook, or a picture posted somewhere in this wide world web is not enough. I want the story with his picture, our story. I want the joy to be shared through a mother’s words.
I blog as a form of therapy, I often re-read my posts many many times to work through these new experiences and emotions. Blogging is a lot cheaper than any therapist.
I blog for the reader who has societal assumptions, the ones who pity, the sorrowful, the misguided, the shoes that I once walked in not too long ago.
I blog for the unknowing Todd at Shoprite, he manages the front end at our local grocery store and has an extra chromosome, maybe by a reader knowing my Grady …that hurried shopper who stumbled upon my blog, will take the time to love on Todd with a friendly hello. Throughout my pregnancy we would connect with him so many times… if only he knew why. I am waiting for that day.
I blog to connect with other T21 mommies, moms in general, other beautiful souls.
I blog as way to share my faith, a faith that is growing, a faith that has been renewed. A faith unshaken but built up by one chromosome. Anchored in Him.
I blog to journal my experience, to hopefully reflect back with laughter, tears, and to celebrate my family….This crazy and wild journey we call life.
I blog because deep within my heart and soul, when I hold my Grady… I have the most incredible feeling of completeness, I wish to share that with you. It brings tears to my eyes just to write about this feeling. I want you to know that we are OK, we are so so so OK. We are more than OK, we are blessed.
I blog because I have a wonderful son Mason, who loves on his little brother with childlike purity. Perhaps the eyes he sees through are the closest to God that we will get on this earth.
Share my blog if you wish, introduce yourself to me so I can know you, the readers who have decided to join in on our journey… comment me!
