This doll is Audrey! Vicky shares a few fun things about her daughter and what she would tell her self the day her little girl was born, knowing what she knows now. You can follow their journey on Instagram at @vickywooandaudreyboo and on their blog at awesomeaudreyemily.com. Audrey loves music. So much so, that if I hum a tune or sing a snippet of something she asks (and signs) for more! I spend a lot of time singing to her or listening to music and dancing!
We didn’t have a pre-natal diagnosis with our daughter. I looked at Audrey and knew she had Down Syndrome immediately. So what would I tell myself if I could go back to when she was born? I think I could write a book on this! I would say, first and foremost, Down Syndrome is not all she is. She was made with love and was meant to be your baby. She is perfect for you and your family and you will love her more than you could ever imagine. The worries and negative thoughts you have now will seem like a waste of energy soon enough. She will show you what true love is and how beautiful life is. I know you are rolling your eyes at this cheesy stuff, but you’ll see. She is going to be awesome and you’ll find yourself telling her constantly “you’re perfect”, “you’re so clever”, “you’re the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen” and “I love you so much.” She’s the best thing you’ve ever done. Enjoy her and don’t worry!
