My baby was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 at 16 weeks. I was scared & confused & knew nothing about it. I still remember getting the news that my blood work came back abnormal & I was asked to come in the next day for more testing. I didn't have a clue about what I was just told. I quickly searched the internet & the Trisomy 18 Foundation was such a blessing. I was terrified at what I read but at the same time I found comfort knowing that there were other families who were going through the same thing. The foundation provided my family and I a place to find comfort and knowledge that nobody else could provide for us. It provided answers & wisdom to prepare for the unknown. We were able to educate our family & friends about what our baby was diagnosed with & what lied ahead of us. Our baby boy passed away at almost 20weeks. Nothing can ever prepare you when you lose a child but when I feel alone, I know I can always count on the Trisomy 18 Foundation. Its where I can go & see how other families are doing & give me a spirit of hope and know that one day I will get to hold my baby again. We love you Charles Adam Martinez! My sweet little angel, you are free from pain & protected by our heavenly father & loved by many!
