Life is what happens....

Ali, Tucker and Lincoln

One of my favorite quotes is, "Life is what happens when you are busy making other plans. - John Lennon." Well, there are some pretty amazing people in my life. If you have been reading my blog for a while you have a little glimpse of that already. good friend, Ali doesn't even realize how amazing she is and I thought I would let you all know what I mean.

Ali was thrown for a loop when her youngest boy was born. Everything with Ali's pregnancy was normal and quite uneventful. But the day he was born wasn't what anyone expected. It wasn't the easy peasy birth like his older brother, Lincoln. Things were wouldn't be same from this moment on...The first thing doctor's had to deal with - Tucker was born with a cleft pallet. Later, doctor's noticed that it looked like Tucker might even have Down's Syndrome. Which later was confirmed to be true.

I can only imagine the roller coaster of emotions you would go through at this point in your life...But let me tell you - Alison is one of the strongest woman I know. She became extremely knowledgeable on all that is Tucker's life. In fact, everyone around her did.

She never complains, she never feels sorry for herself or Tucker for that matter. Even through life's ups and downs she keeps trucking along.

Tucker is quite the little boy. He's happy and growing like a weed just like his older brother. And my friend Ali is amazing woman.
