there are moments...

there are moments on this journey that make you stop, dead in your tracks...moments that touch you, that make you silently reflect and think about just how and why you are on this journey you find yourself on every day. why it was you chosen. moments where things fall into line, when you are at the right place at the right time. things that would have never happened had you not been chosen to take on this new path. people that you meet, and you can feel this swelling inside, the quick paced beating of your heart, because you want so much to wrap your arms around that new mother and tell her that it will be wonderful, breathtaking and inspiring. so when you meet a couple, just a little half way through their first pregnancy at a barbeque, for a friend that either of you hardly ever see...a couple whom after finding out that camden has down syndrome, bursts out to you, whom they have just seconds ago met, that the baby girl they are carrying might have down syndrome too...it makes you stop and realize that this is part of it. this is all part of the journey now...and that somebody else is walking you through each step that you take...because just how much coincidence really happens in life?

and regardless of whether or not that baby girl, still growing and changing, does have down syndrome, this couple needed you at that time, and you needed them. i am thankful for these moments, they always seem to happen at a time when you needed someone to wrap their arms around you and remind you that this path is wonderful, breathtaking and inspiring...


  1. We had a similar thing happen to us this past weekend. Something truly amazing that I know without a doubt is more than just a coincidence! And it does make you feel blessed, and know that God puts you in the right place at the right time. Beautiful, thank you for sharing.

  2. Hey guys! I just came across your blog, and I'm certainly adding it to my list! Our son Noah was born with down syndrome on Dec 15, 2010. We were surprised by his extra chromosome, but life has been great.

    We do a daily one minute video to show case his life! Showing the world that our life is much more "normal" then "un-normal." It's been fun!

    Looking forward to connecting with you guys!

  3. Gosh, you always make me cry! Beautiful as always.

  4. Well said! I love those moments too.
