I'm happy for them, I really am.....But one has to wonder, when enough is enough?
With having a genetic disorder, where the odds of passing it on to your children is 50%, I wavered with my choice to have children. And to keep having them. My feelings were that NF was not going to rob me of being a mommy.
Risks are made, with each and every pregnancy. One could be totally and completely "healthy", and give birth to a child with severe medical needs. So who decides?
Michelle Duggar is very obviously blessed with 18 very beautiful, very healthy children, I hope and pray her 19th baby is just as healthy. But I also know, that if she were met with the challenges of having a child with special needs....the Lord would take care of her and the family.
I would have 50 more babies, if fate so saw it that way. I don't see my NF children as "disabled"....they have special needs...and have a special mommy to take care of those special needs. I am so blessed and I am reminded of this every single day.
Don't worry.....no more babies are on their way. I get reminded all the time, that Bailey only has about 5 yrs to go, before becoming a mother, if she follows in my footsteps....~~~cringe~~~
Bless this baby, and the siblings ---
***RIP POP....I know you are in a better place now! I'm so glad I got to hug you one last time. I love you so much!
