March


March is Trisomy 13 awareness month. March is so much more for our little family. It is the month we met Evan. It is the month we first heard Trisomy 13. It is the month we said goodbye to Evan. It is the month we will welcome a new child into our family. March is just so emotionally charged it is overwhelming at times.
A week from tomorrow will be Evan's first birthday. March 13th (which is trisomy 13 awareness day) will be a year since he was diagnosed. March 16th will be a year since we held our son for the last time. I am ok one minute and a basket case the next. I just keep having to remind myself that there will be a day this March that we welcome another child to our family, but we will always miss Evan.

Hey sweet girl... you have been on my mind and heart! I am weeping and rejoicing with you this month. Certainly God is showing us how He gives and takes away. I am so sorry for your loss and so happy for your new little blessing. I am praying for you. I can't imagine what it's like for you, but I am here if you need me. Love you!

~(((HUGS))), my trisomy 13 angel was also born in March, the 29th. He passed away 8 days later on April 6th, which was Good Friday that year, so Easter always holds such bittersweet memories for our family. Sending love and healing prayers your way, and best wishes for your newest bundle! Love, Peace, & Nimkee blessings....Melissa, Bennett-Chadlen's proud mum xxoo
