Enjoying the small things

20 Jan

Take away the fact that I’m pregnant. Take away the fact that I cried, a lot, before we even knew we were expecting. I dare you to read this and tell me that it’s unreasonable for me to be a ball of hot tears at work today.

Nella’s birth story

I can’t say that having a special needs child isn’t one of my biggest nightmares. I dread, every day in the lead up to our abnormality scan, that there will be something wrong with our little one. That they’ll find something and there will be a conversation about what needs to be done next. And while I know what our decision will be, I only hope that if those nightmares are realised I have as much love and grace and sheer awesomeness in the face of that realisation as the mother of Nella.
