The gift of Trisomy18 !
I have been so blessed to be able to be a part of my new niece's life. 5 weeks ago we were invited to witness the birth of this little miracle not knowing as we waited breathless if she was going to survive the birth. As we waited to see if we were going to be saying hello or good-bye she made it out after a very long day of labor. After a minute she finally started to cry. It was a relief, but however it was still moment by moment. Now 5 weeks in and she is still here and we are so grateful to be blessed with the gift she has given us. Gifts we have received: Love, being able to physically show love, bonding, bringing together family and friends in a very magical way, unconditional acceptance ... I could go on and on !!
I have learned so much about this syndrome and the stories that have been shared through this website really sheds a light and a tear on this syndrome. These babies are true angles and I feel so lucky to have met one !
