Hey, everyone! I had a fun idea to write a fictionalized version of how Macy and I met. The main character’s name is based off of Macy Miller (a close 18p- friend of mine). Here’s a few related blog posts: https://lilliandarnell.com/2018/07/06/annual-chromosome-18-conference-2018-part-1/, https://lilliandarnell.com/2018/06/15/my-adventure-to-surprise-part-1/, and https://lilliandarnell.com/2018/07/09/a-brave-girl/. I hope you enjoy!
Back in July 2016, Macy’s mother Rose commented asking if Macy Helens and I could connect on Facebook on Rebecca (a 18p- friend of mine)’s Facebook post and my mother Camilla Downs asked me if I wanted to connect with Macy Helens before replying to Rose’s comment.
Naturally, I said yes as I was curious and eager to have a 3rd 18p- person to talk to. So I searched up ‘Macy Helens’ and sure enough I found it.
After I clicked follow, I waited for at least 1 or 2 weeks until I Facebook Messaged Macy using Messenger. And 10 minutes later, I got a reply saying Hi.
Then I asked her a few questions to get to know her. I asked, “What’s your favorite song?” at one point. Macy Helens replied, “Let It Go”. I replied, “My favorite song is Let It Go”. And after that I knew we’d be friends.
I also came know that Macy Helens was the same age as me. One year later, Camilla told me they were going to the Annual Chromosome 18 conference and I was ecstatic but I was nervous too since I didn’t know what to expect.
But when the big day came, Macy Helens and I were very shy but as we laughed shyly our shyness slowly drifted away.
We were giggling and laughing more confidently. By the end of the conference, we had become fast friends.
That’s the end of the story. I hope you enjoyed!
