The moment I laid eyes on Joshua I was smitten! Heather and I were pregnant at the same time and connected online. Her son was born a few months before Violet so watching the time, love, and photos he had with his family had me holding my breath as I wished for the same with our daughter. His life was beautiful and his smile and eyes had me no longer afraid of meeting my own baby with Trisomy 13. I will forever be grateful that his family shared him with the world because of the comfort and peace he brought me as we anticipated following in the same bittersweet footsteps mere weeks late.
Heather also quickly crocheted us several small hats for Violet and the one that fit, the infamous white hat with the pink flower, was the exact same size as the one that fit Joshua.
