The Gift of Trisomy 18

Trisomy 18 takes away so much from parents.

But it has given me one thing, and it is this:

Each night, I look at my girl and love her as if each day is her last. It is a wide, wonderful, full-force gush of lurrrve. (It is something I do not experience with Daen.)

C'mon, she's doing well, don't have to be so drama, some say.

Well, I'm afraid that's what life with Trisomy 18 is like. Intense highs and lows. Emotions magnified to their extremities.
