I have not had a positive experience with this organization and would certainly direct other families just learning of a trisomy diagnosis to more informative and supportive groups: SOFT, Hope for Trisomy, etc. The website and blog boards have not changed in the 4.5 years since i have been navigating in the world of trisomy and don't understand why. There are supportive parents out there that want to help whether a child is surviving and thriving or your angel has gone home too soon. Accurate information can empower a parent in crisis to make the best decision for their family and I do not feel that this foundation provides the most current or accurate information. They have a website that provides information for parents who have lost a child but very few to no resources for those that children survive!

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Emphasize accurate information; yes many of our children do not make it but there are babies surviving and thriving! It is so frustrating to see an organization that gets press paint suce a bleak picture that is not always the truth! This organization also receives thousands of dollars each year and it is never clear where the money goes and rarely are donations made to increasing awareness or for research

I cannot thank you enough, VIctoria, The Trisomy 18 Foundation and all the amazing Trisomy 18 parents for all of your support, and words of kindness and advice. My daughter was diagnosed with Trisomy 18, against the odds of what the doctors all told me, she did survive for almost 11 months... 11 months of my life that I will never forget and will treasure forever. The doctors had told me to take her home to die, when she 'surprised' them by surviving birth, but I chose to take her home to live. The Trisomy 18 foundation provides so much support while you are going through such a devastating period. They provide the facts, the real facts that yes many do not survive, but there are survivors.

The Trisomy 18 Foundation provides an excellent resource for families who have received the devastating news that their child has Trisomy 18. Without such a resource, so many families would have a much more difficult time learning about the disease and a much more difficult time meeting other families who are living with the diagnosis. It provides the research but also offers the emotional support that one can after being through the situation first hand.
