“I wouldn’t change it for the world!

My daughter was born at 36 weeks. She has meylo and hydro.

She is a hoot and beautiful! When my wife and I found out around 22 weeks of our daughter’s condition it was a lot like all the other stories I have seen. They told us to abort without a second opinion.

However, with mixed emotions, we had our beauty and we knew we made the best decision! The past three years we have had our ups and downs but we have a lot of good times too!

I wouldn’t change it for the world! My daughter teaches us as much as we teach her!

This story is like so many others I hear. People are encouraged everyday (still) to abort their children because they have Spina Bifida and that just breaks my heart.

Look at this little cutie! What a blessing!
