Mom’s Night Out

Had a great night last night.  I went to a mom’s night out dinner through the Down Syndrome Guild of Southeast Michigan and met some wonderfully strong women.  It feels nice to go and be able to discuss my fears and share Elena’s progress.  I know that I have a family and friends to share these things with as well, but it is nice to talk to women who have been where I am as a mother.  I am so excited to have found this group because they have such a positive message about Down syndrome.  Jason and I will continue to set high goals and expectations for Elena because if we don’t we are doing her a disservice and this group is only going to help us reach those goals.  AND, I made it through the whole dinner, labor story and all, without crying which is a huge step for me!  I am at peace and more determined than ever to embrace my life and help teach others about the joys of having a child with Down syndrome.  We have made it through the storm and now there is calm within my heart.
