ONE STORY AT A TIME
”I spent countless hours reading books about babies and parenting before Bella was born. Little did I know that she would not fit into any of the chapters that I was reading.” ~ Emelie, mother to Bella and Global Marketplace Manager at BabyBjörn.
Bella was born with Spina Bifida, a rare neural tube defect that only a handful of babies are born with every year in Sweden.
In the beginning, I was so scared of what the future would hold. Now, I know having a baby with special needs only means that you will love her even more. I know today that I should not compare my baby to others. Because no other baby is as perfect as mine — since she is mine.
The uncertainty of not knowing what Bella will be able to do physically in the future is pointless to worry about. Emotionally she will be living her life to the fullest, no matter what. The only thing in life that you cannot give or get too much of is love — a beautiful life motto, especially as a parent.
