Mom Was Afraid Daughters Wouldn’t Accept Newborn With Dᴏᴡɴ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ – He Stole Their Hearts Immediately

Having a child can be part of a well-thought-out, thoroughly developed plan, but it can also be a surprise. The unexpected situation in itself would not be cause for concern, since the arrival of a life is always a miracle. However, the story can be spiced up with additional surprises, which can really test the life of a married couple or a family.

Hailing from Jacksonville, Florida, Jennifer and Ryan Hogan met at a college ski camp, and it didn’t take long for them to realize they were meant to be together. They got married and started a beautiful family: they had twin daughters, and 3 years later they welcomed another little girl into the family. They thought their family was complete like this and lived their lives with peace in their hearts.

Jennifer was in her 40s when it was discovered she was pregnant again. The twins were 14 and their youngest daughter was 11 at the time. The couple received the fresh news unexpectedly, but what they had to face at the 12-week screening exceeded all surprises: their baby has Dᴏᴡɴ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ.

The Hogans were really sʜᴏᴄᴋᴇᴅ by the news, which then turned into terror: they were worried about the child but also about the future of their family. They had no idea what consequences this would have for their lives.

But instead of the baby’s arrival and ᴅɪᴀɢɴᴏsɪs changing the family dynamic, it brought everyone together and bonded them in ways they never imagined.

Jennifer was terrified that she wouldn’t be able to give her son the love, support, and attention he deserved. She was also deeply concerned about the added stress that caring for a child with Dᴏᴡɴ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ would put on her marriage and family.

The mother was also afraid that her daughters would resent their little brother and that they would not be able to relate to him as they should because of his differences and the age difference between them. But he had to be disappointed, and pleasantly so: the girls were not shaken by the ᴅɪᴀɢɴᴏsɪs. Although they were surprised by the news of the pregnancy, they couldn’t wait to meet their little brother.

Little Hudson was born in July 2018. The Hogans claim that everything in their lives really fell into place when they held their little boy in their arms for the first time. Seeing the girls also melt away from their little brother, Jennifer’s worries were also dispelled. His heart was grateful and glad he was wrong.

“I am deeply ashamed of these thoughts, but I have always spoken openly about them because I feel it helps others who might find themselves in my shoes to see how capable they really are,” said the mother.

It proved that little Hudson was unnecessary for them to worry about the family. The brothers are inseparable: as soon as the girls go to school, Hudson immediately misses them, and vice versa.

The sisters involve their little brother in all kinds of activities and shower him with love. It’s a joy to watch the girls teach and take care of Hudson while the boy “smothers” them with hugs and kisses.

“Despite their age and intellectual differences, Hudson and his three sisters are best friends and have a great time together. My husband and I couldn’t be prouder,” enthused Jennifer, who speaks with equal pride that being the mother of a child with Dᴏᴡɴ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ is not a burden but a blessing and that they only truly understood the true meaning of unconditional love when Hudson was born.

“It is truly a privilege to love someone with Dᴏᴡɴ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ, but to be loved by someone with Dᴏᴡɴ sʏɴᴅʀᴏᴍᴇ is simply magical,” said the mother. She also said that her little son, who will be 5 years old this year, is doing great, although he has some health ᴄᴏᴍᴘʟɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴs that need ᴛʀᴇᴀᴛᴍᴇɴᴛ. But he is making progress and can slowly tick off all stages of development. Jennifer doesn’t skimp on the pictures she shares of her family either, which she proudly shares on social media and which just radiate love.
