Congrats on your baby girl!!!

Have you read the birth story of Nella Cordelia? It's really quite beautiful and my be a good start in your search of finding others. Here's the link...

When I found out one of my children had an illness that couldn't be cured. I felt scared, devastated, hurt, angry, completely helpless, etc. I know this isn't the same thing but I imagine that I (not sure about others) would feel the same things I felt at that time had I found out my baby had Down's. I spent a period of time grieving for the life I had dreamed my child would have had...the one where she didn't have to struggle. People made me feel guilty for it but I know now that it was normal. It was just part of moving on. I also know those feelings go away and usually faster than you think they will. Your love makes you strong and you begin arm yourself with knowledge. Next thing you know it just...'is what it is'....Life.

LOL! ~mommy~ beat me to it!!
