Time passed and I started getting friend requests from people I didn't know or from people that I thought I knew. Within minutes, I would get phone calls or emails from family and friends..."I have a friend who had a little one with Ds. Do you mind talking to her? Can she email you?" I was so excited. If I can pass on information that we have gained or experiences we have gone through, I'm paying it forward for all the greatness that I had been given. I'll be honest, moms that have children with Ds get quite excited when other babies are born with Ds. We will always have a special spot in our hearts for them. They are the cuddliest, cutest babies in the world. Their low muscle tone makes them curl into your body and you could snuggle for hours with them. We know the magic that will follow.
A friend of mine recently had a new niece with Down syndrome. She sent me a message thanking me for sharing Hailey with them. That Hailey had already impacted their lives and they were grateful for that. It brought tears to my eyes. I'm so happy that I could pay it forward. I hope we can continue doing so.
