So much...

I have so much to say, but I am emotionally drained and physically exhausted from this day. I had to post, though, just to offer up a wish, a hope, a prayer, for Mirne and Craig...I cannot wait to see the pictures of their smiles and their new baby boy. I hope that somehow Freyja and Kees can look down on their mama and dad today...

and to ask for a wish, a hope a prayer...
a friend of a friend of mine had 2 textbook pregnancies and decided to do possibly the most selfless act on earth and become a surrogate mother. She chose (or was chosen? I don't know how this works) a couple who has lost TWO sets of twins.
She is in her second trimester, and today at the big u/s the baby was diagnosed with Down's Syndrome. She is very worried, and feels guilty, and is very unsure of how this pregnancy will continue, and doesn't have a lot of say in any of it.

Oh, my. I can't even begin to understand the complications of this.

Goodness. I don't know what to say. But my thoughts are with your friend and the parents. Please keep us updated.
And I can't stop thinking about Mirne and Craig either.

That is very sad news about the Down's Syndrome. Where do they go from there. I will pray for all involved.

Yes, I am waiting too for the pictures from Mirne. I am praying hard for their new little one.

I do this prayer on thursday which is the hindu mantra for child birth. As I was doing my ritual today, all I thought about was Craig and Mirne and their baby. Please God let their baby be safe and today and for his parents entire life time.

Wow. I don't understand it. It's so overwhelming. I'm so sorry for the couple and for the surrogate mom.

Wow, I can't imagine how she is doing, and dealing with everything to come. Especially since the decisions are 100% out of her hands. :( I hope for much peach to her in the coming days...and much peace to the biological parents.

So overwhelming. Complicated. Confusing.

Holding them all in my thoughts and prayers.
