When Devan was born our life turned down a path we never expected to travel on. We were told early on in the pregnancy that due to her heart defect diagnosed in utero Down syndrome was a possibility, but it was not confirmed until approximately a week after she was born. It was from that point we become card carrying members of the T21 Club. It was from that moment that we gained a greater understanding of hope and gratefulness. The vast amount of love that came from family, friends, even strangers changed how we viewed the world. The love and support was life changing. We learned very quickly that her diagnosis does not define who is she and what she will be become. The number of genes she has does not change her infectious laugh, adventurous attitude and her ability to bug her sister. Different is more beautiful than you can imagine...who knew that it would be wrapped up with the third representation of the twenty first chromosome.
