A Special "Day"

I had the pleasure of connecting with a woman, Mrs. Day, who saw the Fox News story back in April. She lost her baby to Trisomy 18 nearly 11 years ago but was so inspired by Brayleigh's journey. After four months of communicating via phone and email, she came by to meet Brayleigh today. I tried to be sensitive to her emotions when she asked to hold her. Through her tears of admiring Brayleigh's progress and abilities, we did manage to laugh a lot. She gave Brayleigh a blanket that belonged to her daughter, Jade, and that nearly put me in tears. In the end, our babies' journeys (while different) have been and continue to be an inspiration to us all.
