When I went into labor with baby boy #2, issues like Down syndrome had been "ruled out" though at 28 yrs old they were not even on my radar. When the neonatologist paid us a visit hours after Chase was born and asked if we knew what Down syndrome was, we were in shock, our world shattered. The OB came in and was mildly worried we might sue him for "wrongful birth" due to his failure to diagnose in time for an abortion (which we never would have considered). Despite the challenges, we have been blessed with a healthy boy who is best friends with his brother and sister, and who has opened our eyes to how special a life not planned can be! We now see the beauty in weakness and wouldn't choose anything different for our family! God is good! #unplannedparenthood #defundplannedparenthood
