Welcome to The Good, The Bad, and The Baby.
I am a first time mom. My husband and I are learning the hard way that not everything goes according to plan. We found out during my pregnancy that our baby would be born with birth defects. She was born with a cleft lip and a club foot. In the grand scheme of things it was really not a big deal, it was all cosmetic.
Having said that, my husband and I were pretty upset.
Being from the computer era the first thing I did was turn to the internet. Well, sadly, it let me down. I was hoping to find something or someone who had gone through something similar, anything really, and would talk about it. I found lots of ‘official’ medical information and lots of horror stories but nothing really helped. My hope is to discuss some of the things my family went through, is going through and what it may go through. It hasn’t always be easy or fun but it has had it’s good times and some amazing people.
If I can help just one other person, make someone laugh, and lighten the load then I’ve accomplished what I set out do to. So read, comment, and most importantly enjoy!
