Before the Blog

I don't know why, but I think a lot about how we "met" you all after Jacob's birth and diagnosis. "Jacob" started his blog the day he was born and wrote what he observed. While I was in Atlanta at Deeper Still, I remember talking about the blog and one mom commented how there was this mystery behind our blog....it was written from an infants perspective which is different, it was written by either Jason or myself which some enjoyed trying to figure out who, there were events not told about because Jacob was not there or was not born to blog about it. So, for some reason (maybe a mother searching for some details about other T18 journeys, or someone who's baby was given an unfavorable diagnosis after birth, or maybe just to give some more clarity to our story, or just to help me grieve some of my darkest days) I feel like blogging about some events that took place that "Jacob" did not blog about. This will not be short so you may have to take this in shifts...I will be writing in parts.

Karen,

This is going to be such a blessing for all of the possible reasons you listed, and many more. I had felt the mystery along the way too. I will be here following your words, being blessed by them, and praying you through this step of your journey. I am praying that Gods healing hands go gentle and deep as you share your heart. I love Jacobs story and will love it from your prospective as his mommy. Bless you girl.

Love and Hugs, Laurie in Ca.

I have never been in your situation but I have followed your blog since the beginning, reading, praying, weeping. I wanted to encourage you to keep writing - I am looking forward to hearing the other side of the story. God has used Jacob's story and your lives to draw me closer to Him and for that I am grateful.
