I just wanted to publicly thank Deidrea and T.K. Laux for this video. I can't tell you enough how much it means to me, to know that you chose Thomas!
Knowing full well what the out come of this pregnancy would likely be, this couple chose to put their own feelings aside and give Thomas an opportunity at life, regardless how fleeting it might have been. They gave Thomas the chance to enjoy life and be loved as ALL babies deserve.
PLEASE, Think before you decide that your little one isn't worth it. Thomas was worth it!
I'm sure that to some people, Thomas would have been less than perfect. But in the eyes of his parents, he was the world. HE WAS PERFECT!
Too many people are choosing to terminate babies who are PERFECTLY beautiful children. Out of selfishness? Or fear? I don't know... but it makes me so sad to think that so many children with DS are being terminated because they aren't what their PERFECT parents expected. This is awful. Again, please talk to someone, do some research, meet people with disabilities and STOP being PERFECT!

Snuck in to my lil turds room and snapped a quick pic of him sleeping with his mask on again the other day. Pretty good for his first week!
Today Shaunee, the respiratory therapist came over to check up on our progress. I had scheduled her to come at 1 pm so that by then Hunter would be good and ready for a nap. He wore his mask without a fuss and we took him upstairs to his room where we hooked him up and turned the machine on. I held him until he fell asleep. No fussing, No crying. Just calm, peaceful sleep! AVEC OXYGEN SIL VOUS PLAIS!
ORIGINALLY, we were supposed to meet up with other members of Ups and Downs, but I quite obviously did not read the Invite close enough and the Wagon ride that the Ups and Downs folks were on LEFT for the pumpkin patch at 10:00 am sharp. We showed up around 10:30! Ha ha! Butterfield Acres was very nice about letting us go for our Wagon ride out to the pumpkin patch anyway. All three of the kids got to hunt out a pumpkin to take home with them!
