I'm always amazed at the direction life takes you!
When I had 3 boys, we talked about adopting a little girl. I always wanted 4 kids. We discussed it a little bit, but never got serious about it. After I started working on the surgical unit of the childrens hospital, I told Ray I wanted to adopt a baby with a heart defect.
I wanted a little girl that sported an extra chromosome. I was worried a little bit. I had always wanted a girl. Would a little girl with Down syndrome do everything I dreamed a girl would? I wanted a girl that I could put in a dance class like I did. One that would go shopping with me, and be my buddy.
I'm the luckiest momma in the world! And to think that if Jaxson hadn't come into my life, Arina would not have come into my life either.
And I know I've said it a million times, but being the momma of a girl is everything I ever dreamed it would be! And quite honestly, I think her extra chromosome makes her even cuter!
