Episode 015: Listen, Learn, and Love - a Candid Conversation with Uncle Taylor and Auntie Brienna
Uncle Taylor and Auntie Brienna received one of the first calls when we found out about Genevieve's Down syndrome diagnosis. Like the rest of our family, we received an outpouring of support for us and our family. But Tay and Bri live in Denver; two flights away. So instead of getting to hold little Genevieve right away, they held their phones and got picture after picture of this brand new little adventure.
They SHOWERED her with love, praise, adoration, and good old fashioned oohs and ahs. Genevieve's diagnosis meant they had more to learn, but Tay & Bri immediately started to listen to us as parents and understand what they could. They were with us on this adventure from day one and we knew it.
And they've always seen that adventure as fun. It was so great to look back with them and talk about their process of becoming part of our Upside Down Family!
We love to support what Taylor and Brienna are doing (And trust me, they do it well!)
