In the beginning month of Jan.2012 we were informed that our baby boy was diagnosed with full Trisomy 18. He was still born on March 11.This was my second pregnany in a row with a T18 diagnosis. I was pregnant last year with a baby girl with full T18 also. We lost her at 16 weeks gestation. The Trisomy 18 foundation website helped me realize I was not alone through this journey. Having a baby diagnosed with this terrible condition is so devasting. When you are told by several doctors that it is such a rare condition and hospitals only see 3-5 T18 babies born every year and the treatment involved you have no were to turn except the internet. You can't pick up the phone and talk to someone in your area to help you through this, but I have met so many others that had to go through this same thing through T18. We need to help raise awareness for T18 and all the families affected by this. Thank you Trisomy 18 Foundation.
