Last spring I ran my own series about this test. Many moms contributed photos and essays for that series, expressing their concerns about the test and its possible effects on our society. I still share those concerns, however the post I wrote for Amy addresses the flip side of things: how I feel this test can benefit families and perhaps help them to prepare for the birth of a child with "something extra". I hope you'll take time to go read my thoughts, and share your ideas in the comment section there. Amy Julia has a new eBook out called What Every Woman Needs to Know about Prenatal Testing

And now, for our girl's third birthday....
Simple. That was the theme here, as you will quickly realize :)
Three homemade cakes made from a box and three trick candles that always make a crowd of little kids squeal. That's how we rolled this year.
Lily was delighted. And that's all that mattered :)
After opening a pile of sweet gifts, we sang to the birthday girl....
...and ate cake.

And the next day the celebration continued...
