Sometimes I wish we would have known about the funky chromosome before Kira got here. Her first year, I thought that I was glad that we didn't know. I figured that my pregnancy would have been so scary if we would have known.
I hate so much how her first couple of days had to be. If we had known beforehand, her birth would have been a welcome relief, I think. We would have met her and seen how beautiful she was and we could have just been joyful. Instead of sad and scared.
I am thankful, though, to not have had to face the indecision. I don't think we would have changed anything. I think we would have been strong enough to face the unknown. But I am thankful to not have had to test that.
Either way, Kira is here now. And we think she rocks.
