Kelle Hampton on the Today Show 4/11/2012

from the Today Show on NBC:
Kelle Hampton author of "Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected" is a guest on the Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda 4/11/2012.

from Today Books:
When Kelle Hampton found out she was pregnant with her second child, she was ecstatic. But when her new daughter Nella was born, she knew instantly that something was wrong: Nella had Down syndrome. Hampton writes about the experience in her new book, "Bloom: Finding Beauty in the Unexpected." Read an excerpt.


  1. I have been waiting to watch this all day! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I like the crazy ladies waving their arms in the background! Ha ha! Great job Kelly...good thing you couldn't see the crazy ladies behind you :D

  3. What a wonderful way for Kelle to share her story....and she did a great job....I just wish Hoda and Kathie Lee would have quit interrupting her and as far as the quote about how "having a Down syndrome child taught me how to love"...certainly don't think that was the case with Kelle and her family. Lainey started their love relationship as parents and I believe because of that....they had a huge head start with Nella! These two are wonderful parents and Nella and Lainey are surely blessed as I am sure Brett and Kelle feel THEY are the ones blessed. Great job Kelle, never stop sharing your story.....Nella is amazing and beautiful!!
