About Choosing Noah, Inc.

Welcome! So glad you're here. I'm Yamileth Johnson, also known as Yami or to many as "Supernoah's Mom". It was during my pregnancy with my fourth son, Noah, that I received my Down Syndrome diagnosis. It was something that I couldn't have imagined happening to me. I immediately asked myself "why me?"and after numerous conversations with doctors, my husband and some family members, I felt like the world was against me having this baby. I ultimately made the final decision to continue with my pregnancy and love my baby no matter what the outcome would be. Fast forward to three years later, it has been quite a journey for us and a decision that I don't regret.

 

Today, thanks to social media, it's become easier and more rewarding for parents like me to share our journey as special needs parents. We all know that being a parent may not always be easy no matter what your situation is. I launched this blog to share more of my journey with my son Noah and created our non-profit organization, Choosing Noah, Inc., to spread awareness about prenatal diagnosis and how it is handled by medical staff so expecting parents don't feel pressured to terminate a pregnancy based on negative statistics given to them initially instead of hope. Our organization provides resources for expecting and current parents of special need and/or medically complexed children. I know that the way a diagnosis is given can save a life and I want to make a difference in the lives of other parents, who like me, don't have all the answers and are just taking it one day at a time.

In the end, it's all about hope, love, patience and understanding. God does not make mistakes and it is our job to understand his plan and enjoy the ride, even on days when we wish that we could just get off.
