First off, our moms are awesome. Kate’s mom spent two and a half weeks with us here cooking, cleaning, and generally making our lives so much easier after Simon was born. She left today, and we’re already missing her! So thanks Mom! While I took Kate to the airport today, my mother picked up where her mother left off and kept Kate company. We are blessed to have such wonderful, supportive families.
The other thing I wanted to mention was this opinion piece in the Washington Post about Down Syndrome babies and prenatal testing. I don’t have much to say about it other than I thought it was an EXCEPTIONAL piece, and I just wanted to throw it out here for other people to read.
