So, Today we went to see the Genetisist (SP) and they told us that our daughter, Jenessa, is doing great! We are so happy, but it got me thinking about how it felt when we found out that she had down syndrome.... We didn't have the tests and so, we didn't know ahead of time. I hate the way I felt the first time I saw her. My husband put her in my arms and I looked at her and instantly noticed that something was wrong. I tried to pretend I didn't see anything and then continued to look at her. Is this normal? Did any other mom's do this?? I love my daughter and I have accepted and embraced the fact that she has down syndrome, but I kinda feel guilty that it wasn't "love at first sight!" Just wondering!
