It was almost as if I was so afraid of her response to seeing a picture of Isabelle that I felt I needed to prepare her. Prepare her for what... seeing a beautiful baby? It is so important to me that Isabelle isn't defined by Down Syndrome but here I am trying to "soften the blow" and let someone know before they even meet/see her that she has DS.
I was very ashamed of my reaction but with every situation...I learn and hopefully I grow.
Sister is beautiful just as she is and I am proud of her. I see things in me that I know I need to work on and situations like these remind me that Isabelle is helping me grow as a person. Sometimes there are growing pains but I will become stronger and more confident as a person and her mother with time.
