Our Normal. (Start Here if You're New)

"The test is positive."

I've cried over those words twice in my life. The moment Benjamin was diagnosed with Down syndrome felt like someone had punched me in the gut. I mourned the loss of my son; at least that's how it felt. I told God I never wanted to feel that way again. 

God had other plans... 

Alexis was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, August 9th, 2013. I mourned the loss of my daughter; at least that's how it felt. 

Our normal is different than yours. We've walked through stages of life that most people wouldn't believe if I told them. 

I write our story down because I don't believe myself sometimes. 

In the midst of it all, though it's not always easy to say... 

God is still God. God is still good.
