Another Beautiful Butterfly is BornFebruary 22, 2012
A few weeks ago, I received a message from another mother telling me that her unborn baby had Turner Syndrome, diagnosed 13 weeks into her pregnancy. She was currently 34 weeks pregnant and awaiting the birth of her baby. She touched my heart when she told me, "I have read your posts and would like to thank you for sharing them. They have helped us stay positive, but yet be okay with our true feelings sometimes." She specifically referenced this post. Rereading it today, still stings, still makes me cry.
Of course when I found out her baby was born this past week, I asked if I could announce it for her to the world! And so, it is my distinct pleasure to announce today that another beautiful butterfly is here
Her mom says, "She is our little fighter and put up a good fight coming out. We are so lucky to have her here!"
Welcome Abbey! We are so happy you made it from your mommy's womb into her arms!
You are gorgeous, and Lily is lucky to have another Turner Syndrome sister. I hope someday our girls can meet face to face.
Do me a favor today... leave a comment for Christy and Abbey, welcoming Abbey! I'll make sure that Christy gets all of them.
