In My Womb I Carried You
In My Womb I Carried You

My name Is Alma and I am blessed with a beautiful angel, my daughter Avelette Carolina. My princess is six months and two weeks old. She was born with Down syndrome. I had the greatest suprise and blessing at birth and that was to hold Avelette. There's no words that can describe the joy my daughter and older son bring to my world. She has the brightest smile and most beautiful eyes. I never compare to what she does different from other babies, but she's achieved every milestone.
