His Birthday Eve

It is crazy to think that tomorrow Kean will be the big deuce.
It's even crazier to think that two years ago, I was stuck in a hospital room with certificates 
on the wall to mark each week I'd survived. 
 And it's crazy to remember that my children actually asked me
 if I'd like to come visit them at their house!!!
 But you know what is the craziest thing of all?
The fact that I was freaked out about the unexpected "news" that came 45 minutes after his birth.
What a fool I was.  If only I'd had a glimpse of the joy that awaited me.
I read an article today about a woman who had a daughter with Down Syndrome.
She titled her book something along the lines of The Year My Daughter And I Were Born.
What a perfect title.
