Y'all are my therapy in a way...

I can't even begin to tell you how thankful & actually how shocked I am with the response from this post- "You want honesty? You got it...I'm so bloody jealous..." I'm not gonna lie, I was a tad bit nervous even publishing it because I felt I wrote it in such an emotional, deep-down-dark place...


But, you dear friends once again amaze me...All your thoughts/comments/emails/messages & more, in which you are either sharing your story & relating to what I am feeling {which brings huge validation to it all} or encouraging me in my journey, have once again brought me much needed strength...


I received over 300 messages of some sort in regards to this Post- And try as I might to respond to them all, please know if I haven't yet, I really truly appreciate you taking the time to share what you have with me...


I find writing this blog very "therapeutic", but getting emails from new Down syndrome parents in which they found some kind of hope or inspiration from the honesty of my words, is "healing" in a way I never knew possible...Hearing from a dad who's wife is having a hard time accepting their baby with Down syndrome & found the blog helpful...Or simply getting a message from anyone saying the blog made them smile...


The hope is that if Pip & my little family can bring someone/anyone a bit of happiness or peace or just simply to get them to look at life a wee bit differently, my mission with Happy Soul Project has been successful...And in turn it brings with it a "healing/help/therapy" of it's own to me...


So, thank you friends once again for actually reading my story & sharing yours...








P.S...PIP UPDATE:  A lot of you have asked how Reid is doing...Yesterday I tried to have a chill-out-pj-kinda-day...I pictured snuggin & long naps all day long...

Lovely in my head, impossible with a toddler & sick baby...Noal lately wants to constantly be around Pip- If I try to nap her in another room, he always wants to go in & check on her...Yesterday was no different...Needless to say, she didn't get much rest with him around...



Today, her little cough seems better, she is napping it up & she is full of smiles & I got to snug with her all day... 


One good thing about that bloody NG feeding tube was last time she had pneumonia the meds were simply put in that- This time around Pip wants to spit it out the moment it touches her mouth & makes the strangest little face...



So I think we're back on the up & up- All we need now is just a cataract to disappear...Impossible miracle I know but hey putting it out there...
