How It Went and How It Goes
The story of Jaxson’s World begins in 2015, when a young couple was expecting a little sidekick to share their adventures in this life. Shortly after shocking their families and friends with the news of the upcoming addition, they were sent into a world of confusion, fear and depression. During one of Ally’s ultrasounds the couple was informed that there was a strong possibility that their baby would be born with Trisomy 21.
After many tears were shed, words were had and hugs were given, Jordan and Ally began ascending from the whirlwind of emotions with a sense of clarity and decisiveness. It’s all too common for doctors, friends and family who are concerned for the well-being of expecting special needs parents to suggest a pregnancy termination. What the young couple came to realize is that there should be no consideration to terminate a pregnancy based solely on the potential diagnoses of the baby. Before this information was given, this baby was wanted, loved and welcomed by all, and that's how it would remain.
One must keep in mind that the opinions of others are typically coming from a place of love, but are clearly misinformed. Once the two had their thoughts together, they kindly invited anyone in disagreement to either put their opinions aside and become part of this baby’s world, or part ways forever. Thankfully, no ways were parted, and the amount of support from their family and friends has been nothing but outstanding!
Fast forwarding a few months to when Jaxson’s nursery room was in the works. A special baby like Jaxson deserved a special room to call his own. Bored by all the cookie cutter designs, cheap and uncomfortable fabrics, and $100 solid blue crib sheets, Jaxson’s daddy decided it was time to break out the old pencil and started creating an outer space theme by hand. Designing something truly unique and original for that little boy.
Jaxson’s World came about shortly after. A culmination of fine art, creative nursery décor, inclusiveness, love and a desire to share that with the rest of the world!
