This month is Trisomy Awareness month. The 13th of the month is particularly special as it is the day we celebrate our wonderful Trisomy 13 family. It is also super special that Philip's birthday is this month. So amazing to me that he would have been 5 this week. How fast the time has pasted and yet, I still feel like just yesterday I was kissing his chubby cheeks.
This past Saturday, Cristian and I were laying down (I was trying to get a nap out of him because I needed one too). As we chatted I mentioned that this week is Philip's birthday. In response Cristian said, "Mommy, I wish he was here with us because he is my hero." It took all I had to not burst into tears.
