Her Name

Since I found out that our daughter has downs I wanted to get a name for her so it seemed more real to me. I kept looking at names but the only name I could think of was Sienna which my husband heard on his mission. He baptized a little girl who was 11 with that name and has loved it ever since and ever since he told me he liked that name it stuck with me too and I can't think of anything better for her. Her middle name will be Marie after me which is my middle name. It feels so much better to have a name for her.

Welcome :)
I just wanted you to know you are not alone...there are so many of us out here in this blogging world who share the same fears and feelings as you, and we are all here to help each other on this journey we have in common.
Your daughter is going to bring you more joy than you have ever known...you were chosen to be her Mother. Everything is going to be ok. Heavenly Father does not make mistakes Sienna has such a special purpose, she will touch the lives of all those around her.

What a beautiful name! We just moved from MD to SC, but back in MD I met a family with a 3 yr old daughter who has Ds; her name is Sienna :) She is just adorable and we miss her family already!

Anyway, my name is Michelle and I have a 7 yr old daughter, Kayla, who has DS and a 2 yr old son, Lucas.

Congrats on the upcoming birth of Sienna!

Hi- Just came across your blog-I too found out while I was pregnant that my son would have DS as well as a heart defect. He is 14 months now and doing great!

Sienna is a beautiful name, I actually know another little girl named Sienna and she happens to have DS as well.

You can stop by my blog if you'd like to see my little one:
and ask any questions you'd like!

I started blogging as soon as I found out and it helped a ton and now I have all these wonderful friends that can support me and answer questions I may have, so you're off to a great start! I look forward to following along!
