Cards on Monday!

This is a page about my daughter Lola who was diagnosed with a Cystic Hygroma at 19 weeks and with Fetal Hydrops at 26 weeks (these are almost always signifiers for severe disabilities or genetic defects). Doctors didn't think Lola would survive and recommended "termination" but I was SURE she was going to be OK so I stuck it out. She's thriving now with no genetic or health problems- doctor's still don't know what caused the fetal distress. The stress of this pregnancy was what started me scrapping- I needed a distraction from all the nasty medical news.
Missing: Scrap Mojo
We all know how it feels when the mojo takes a break- uncool!
The journaling in spanish reads: Your first hard food was rice.
You made me laugh when you picked the grains up one by one.
This page took a while to come together and when it did I was floored by how much I loved it. That happens a lot- I go in blind (no sketch or prior idea for a page) and end up with a great project. Then I need someone else's perspective to help me see what I did.
