I was looking around on the Trisomy18 Foundation page today. It occurred to me that Abby might live longer than I expect. I hope that I am able to embrace each day without waiting for her death.
It also occurred to me that she might not live to 39 weeks. I had really blocked that thought. I am aware we only have a 50% chance of a live birth, but I choose to forget that she may loose her strength before labor. That realization is scary.
I'm glad I don't spend too much time considering that. I'm glad I get to feel her kicks and know that for now she is strong, and healthy, and alive. That our story with her has already begun, and we're so blessed to have this child growing with our love.
