Uncertainty, Followed by Anticipation, Ending in Love

Uncertainty, Followed by Anticipation, Ending in Love October 23, 2013

Kristin Taylor wrote me this sweet letter about her precious Luke.  (Visit her blog here.)
HI Bristol –

I am pleased to introduce you to my son Luke, who recently turned 10 months old.  My husband and I learned prenatally that Luke would be born with both Down syndrome and a heart defect known as Atrioventricular Canal Defect (AV Canal).  Our world was rocked for a few weeks but as we began to accept what would become our reality, the excitement about growing our family returned.  When Luke was born, he was more beautiful that I could have imagined and his personality fills our lives with an indescribable joy every day.  I was worried when I learned of our prenatal diagnosis that I wouldn’t love him as much as I loved his older brother Matthew or maybe that being his Mom wouldn’t as rewarding as I hoped it would be.  I was absolutely wrong!  I love Luke with all my heart and I feel completely fulfilled as his mother.  I am excited to watch my boys learn and grow in the coming years and ultimately, I am excited for the future of our family!


PS – Soon after learning of our diagnosis, a friend shared your mom’s “Letter from God” with my husband and I and it brought us so much comfort during a time of uncertainty in our lives.  Thank you to your family for spreading Down syndrome awareness and much love to you all and especially Trygg!

    Luke is a special little fellow that God gave to great caring parents. They have so much love and will always help him to make it through whatever comes his way.
