I been busy praying.. the boys not feeling the best.. Mike was laid off for the winter. ( we were expecting this)
So the boys have enjoyed having daddy home. Kate been spending more time at Billy. That ok .. We are all learning and praying that all goes well for Kate and For Billy.
Mikey got a full time job.. whoot. :) Kate finished her Christmas shopping, i think the boys will LOVE the presents she got them..
Landon all been busy helping with key chains and bracelets... he hoping people will keep buying..:) Keep fighting..
Gene Veritas, a Huntington's blogger and a HD Advocate and is HD positive, has interviewed me about Kate's pregnancy. We have had many people make unkind remarks about the baby and Kate's decision to NOT test the baby while in the womb for the HD gene, and she chosen to have this child. and not terminate the pregnancy.
Believe it or not many people have told me that if the baby has JHD/HD it is our own fault.. (because we could have avoided this if we test the baby and terminate the pregnancy if it comes back positive).. This has happen not only on our HD Family site but in our local area.
It makes me sad that people can be so hateful toward my child and grandchild. I don't agree with pregnancy termination or abortion. I never have. I had people even ask me if I had the choice to test Kate before birth would have I aborted her.. The answer is NO! NEVER... it was never a thought or a idea that crossed my mind..
Kate feels the same about her tiny child. She has names picked out and is in love with this child already. She knows that she may have passed the HD gene on,and she knows that she most likely won't live to see the child grow up. But she also knows there is a good chance that she might NOT have passed the HD gene on and that there is hope in the research. She knows her child will bring joy and peace to us that she leaves behind.
My prayer is that her pregnancy keeps going normally, and her child will be welcomed in to this world with love and hope.
My prayer for those who say those unkind words to me and to those who believe that Kate is selfish.. my prayer for them is that they may find peace, that they can offer people love instead of anger and judgment because otherwise with out love and hope we are all defeated by Huntington's...
If we work together we can keep the fight and find a treatment!. We may not always agree with what each other does but we can offer love and not judgment.
I believe that Gene Veritas blog about the couple that terminated their pregnancy at 22 weeks needed to be told. I am sure it was painful for them and so very hard. I pray that they can heal. I also have been told that Kate's bay has no place in this world because we are not testing.. to that I say "God is in control and we are putting the baby and Kate in HIS HANDS, for he is our Creator and our Father, in Him we rest our worries. It says in bible that "i knew you in your mothers womb, I knitted you together" This tells me that GOD knows Kate's baby and He is in CONTROL and for that I am so thankful for
