I overheard some women talking at the park, and one of them was newly pregnant for the first time from the conversation. One of the other ladies said something like, "Don't worry - as long as you eat well and don't do anything to hurt yourself and the baby, everything will be fine!"

I had to wander away at that point... Oh, how I wish that was true! I wanted to break in and correct them, but that wouldn't accomplish anything but scaring them. And then I had to wonder, what did they think of me and Danny, with his cochlear implants announcing his disability to the world? Did they think I had done something purposefully to hurt him, that it was my fault?

Sigh.

I'm so glad I have you gals.

It must be bliss to be so ignorant, right? *Hugs* I know how hard it must've been to walk away without saying something. Most parents of children with disabilities do not know what caused them.

why do most women refuse to be honest with each other. The new mom was scared and she had every right to be. Why do we feel that sugar coating is best? The sugar coating is what makes the reality that much harder to deal with. I never say, do this or that and your baby will be fine, however I do say, no matter what happens it will be your baby and you will love them. Because to me that is reality

I couldn't agree more! I always try to reassure people if their fears are general and tell them they're doing all they, and that they should focus on the fact that there is no reason to expect anything to go wrong - but never make promises, but surprises DO happen, you know? It just frustrates me how no one ever wants to acknowledge the truth, that pregnancy doesn't always mean a healthy, bouncy baby will be coming home.

I get that now. It almost makes me feel like "well geez maybe I should have done something differenet and Avery wouldn't have been born with cataracts" but in truth the only thting that could have prevented it was not having her in the first place. I would much rather have my baby with no vision not have her at all
