Deciding to share our life

IMG_20180315_221307_292Everyone might not agree with me or understand why I decided to share our story, Kenai’s story, or why I continue to do so, and that’s ok. I don’t do this for me, or for attention. I do this because I know what it feels like to be handed a diagnosis, a diagnosis so small that there is not a name. I know what it is like to hit up google, hoping to find others like us, other stories, only to come up with scary or sad outcomes. I know what it feels like to be hit with that overwhelming sense of hopelessness. I know what it is like to not be able to turn to other mothers I have known for years, because they cannot grasp these feelings. I do this to show this IS a beautiful life. I do this to show progress and how “normal” is not everything, to show different is good. I do this to show how OK this is, that trials pop up but that does not have to be the center focus, there is so much good intertwined throughout the ups and downs & you can let those moments overpower the scary or harder days. I do this because I feel like it helps others in similar situations to focus more on the good instead of the hardship, although that side I share too. I do this to help others who understand this world come together, but I also do this to show others who have not been handed a diagnosis for their baby, that even though our lives are different from theirs, they are also a lot the same.  I do this to raise awareness, pray it helps others become more accepting, and that inclusion becomes the norm. I do this because I know this life we have been living since Kenai was born is a gift, he is here for good, for purpose, and it is too big of a purpose to keep to ourselves. 💚
