Seventeen weeks into my pregnancy it was confirmed that our sweet baby girl had spina bifida. How could this happen? What did that mean? What IS spina bifida? Our world was rocked with the news that our precious daughter would have special needs.
For as long as I can remember October has always been my favorite month. In our family October is about birthdays, celebrations and the start of the holiday season. A time of light, love and family.
My husband and I were expecting our first born child. We had a baby shower and decorated the nursery. My OB insisted on a routine 32 week ultrasound. No one expected to find anything because the 20 week ultrasound was fine, but something was wrong.
