My life is an open book, you can turn the pages of pain and the chapters of unexpected joy. I am not writing about my life to prove that I am more special than anyone else. But I write to you so that you know you are not alone. I have something I want to tell you. A perspective on life that I wasn't planning of having.
After my second son, Elias, was born with Down syndrome, I became a different person. And it was because of God's grace that I can speak to you with hope.
The story I write to you is about love. Not the perfect love you might see in the movies. It's messy. There is pain and tears. Joy too, but sometimes that is found through sorrow. This story is honest. This is my love story.
