A letter to her...
"Perhaps this is the moment for which you were created" Ester 4:14
This verse will forever have so much meaning. It will remind you in those uncertain hours of Friday the 15th of June 2018 that you were in fact born to be a mother to two beautiful girls. With Coco being diagnosed at birth with Down Syndrome and the uncertainty with what that meant, you will realise that you have a voice so you can speak up for Coco even in the first few hours she was born. You will be become a woman you admire, someone who is resilient, patient, understanding and someone who will be overly emotional. You will become an uncertified Dr, Nurse, Advocator, Educator and a professional all things Down Syndrome.
You see this girl Coco was born for you and your family. To fit in perfectly with Phoenix and you will admire the strength and love Phoenix has for Coco. You will be so proud of both of them and what they achieve.
Coco brings extra love and warmth than you can ever imagine. She will show you more than you thought was possible. Coco's affectionate, loving and a happy girl with some extra sass and attitude. She will challenge you and bring you to become the woman you are meant to be. She's a fighter, and you are too, side by side. She was born for a moment such as this, and you were as well. Never underestimate who you are and who she and what is to come, because life is more beautiful than you ever thought.
