This was not the future we envisioned or dreamed of for our child. What we had taken for granted was no longer certain. In fact, we were being told by the experts that it was not possible. People where telling us to give up, to let go.
The diagnosis of our unborn baby was a tornado that came out of nowhere and changed that. We had no warning, no preparation, and no knowledge of what that tornado was. It felt like a freight train coming right at us so loud I could not hear any other noise. The tornado made a direct hit. Everything was wiped away except for the two of us standing looking around asking ourselves, “What do we do now?”

I learned more in the first minute of Kieran’s life than I learned the rest of my life combined. To get what we want, we must step into what we fear most. Expose ourselves to the world so that we can connect as humans to align and support each other to achieve what we say we want most, whatever that is for each of us. It begins with each of us.
