: My name is nikky and I want to tell you about my angel.
: My husband and I decided last Christmas that we wanted another baby. So in January, when I found
: I was expecting, we were so excited. We planned for our baby. Everything was going to be wonderful.
: But after a blood test, I was told that my baby had a chance of having downs syndrome. I just knew it
: my fault and there was something I could've done. After I went to about 5 neonatal appointments for sono-
: grams and testing, they said that everything looked good and my husband and I thought we were in
: the clear. So we contiuned to plan for what we now knew was a little girl. I went into labor four weeks
: early the doctors refused to induce. They said it was too soon. Then things started to go wrong. My
: baby's heart rate was dropping. They would have to take her early. I was scared and after the delivery
: I kept asking, "How's my baby?" Noone would answer me. Even after I saw her and held her, noone
: let on that there was anything wrong. Then all of a sudden a doctor comes in talking about downs
: syndrome and how "babies like these don't breast feed sometimes." Babies like these? My goodness,
: what a way to break the news. Of course the doctor apoligized after seeing the terrified look on my face.
: She had assumed that we knew. I was devistated, and then I looked at my daughter and I started to cry.
: I sobbed for what seemed like forever. It was the happiest and saddest day of my life. But now, I
: wouldn't have it any other way. I am now so humble and able to see things in a whole new perspective.
: I know that God sent me a little angel. She's taught me patience and how not to take advantage of life,
: or the things we automatically take for granted. Thanks for reading, and I hope that this helps anyone
: that had life take them by surprise!!!!!

My mom told me when I found out about my son, Caleb, God gave him to me for a reason...
Caleb is now 10 yrs. old and my mother was absolutely correct. Little things that other parents may take for granted are a wonderful milestone for us. You will see as your little one grows.
