#WaltsWarriors, I want to share with you Our #WaltTheWarrior story. When I was pregnant, my husband and I did not find out the gender because all we prayed for was a healthy baby. We never did genetic testing or any in depth ultrasounds because we didn’t have a reason to since I was under the age of 30 and nothing ran in our family to alarm my amazing OBGYN to test further. I couldn’t have asked for a better pregnancy, other than having severe “morning sickness” 24/7, I was on cloud nine during my pregnancy. I loved being pregnant with our #SweetBabyMo. I always had the feeling of wanting to be pregnant forever to keep the connection with our baby and to protect him/her forever. The day of Walt’s birth will always be the most surprising and out of body experience feeling I believe I will ever experience. I went in at 39weeks and 2days to be induced. My Labor&Delivery was smooth sailing and it felt like a party while we waited for our #SweetBabyMo to make his/her grand entrance. After 45mins of pushing, out came a beautiful, squishy, screaming baby boy! We had welcomed our Walter Luther Morris, IV “Walt” into this world. Then the news of his #T21 #DownSyndrome diagnosis was shared and the worry that he may have a heart condition was possible. After processing the happiest feelings of Walt being born, we then had to process the life we know had with our Walt that we never planned on having. I now say and believe that God laughs at our plans. He knows what we can handle and He hand-picked Trey and I to be Walt’s parents and biggest advocates. We were and still are genuinely excited to raise a child with an extra chromosome and experience the love and compassion that our Walt will imprint on the world. But the worry of our precious baby having open-heart surgery always haunted us. And now we are here. Walt’s surgery repair was perfect. We keep hearing the doctors tell us that. We now need Walt to be in stable condition, with stable numbers so his body can work the way it needs to. We ask you KEEP ON PRAYING for our #WaltBabyLove. God is answering our prayers. God wants us to keep fighting for Walt so that Walt can keep fighting for himself. THANK YOU TO THE MAXX!!
