Tell Us About Your Journey Into Motherhood
“Croía was a beautiful surprise for me and Craig. We found out at 12 weeks pregnant that Croía had Down Syndrome which brought on a tonne of emotions but the main one being unconditional love. We had lots of scans to check on Croía’s health and learned she would have to have heart surgery and tummy surgery very early on. But when it came to it she recovered like a champ. She is such a fighter and a real Miss Independent.
The first 4 weeks of Croía’s life was spent in the hospital which was very tough but we got to spend that time in our own little bubble with her which we are eternally grateful for. The bonding time we had with her was nothing short of amazing. The whole way through our pregnancy after we were told of all the things Croía wouldn’t do or achieve and from day one she has proved all those people wrong. She is smashing all of her milestones and making us the proudest parents every day.
She is the cheekiest little girl that has so much love to give and brightens peoples day with her beautiful smile. So you could say our journey to parents was a bit out of the ordinary but I wouldn’t change it for the world. “
