Do you remember that day you announced that a baby was on its way?   It was a moment I will never forget.  Partly because we captured it all on video in this surprise baby announcement. 🙂


On this day 3 years ago, I had NO idea how being a parent would change me.  I also had no idea that I was going to be a mother to a special little girl who would have heart surgery and a pacemaker before she had solids.  A little girl who would look a little different from her peers because of a genetic condition.

When this video was recorded, I did not know that motherhood would break me down to my core and make me feel so alone some days, or that I would come out the other end so much stronger.   Nor did I know that my mission in life would be to help other moms like me who worry about their little one’s health, nutrition, or growth.   Watching this video brings tears to my eyes thinking about what we have been through and how far we have come.

How did you announce your pregnancy?  How have you changed since becoming a mother?
