When i lost my son, at 24 weeks, i found myself in depth of pain that overwhelmed all around me, move on.... it left me feeling all alone, with no one i could turn to, i sought out information, something to ease the pain, more understanding for the why my baby, I found the Trisomy 18 Foundation on line, the first words were, we are sorry you have had to seek us out, i knew I had found someone who understood. At first, just reading the foundation gave me solace, I was normal, I was not the only person to feel this way, then from my first post, being offered support and comfort, from others who knew and understood my pain, thoughts and feelings, it ws the only place I felt safe to speak freely, without judgement, or criticism, surely you dont feel that bad?? The support continued with a subsequent pregnancy, offering yet again, my worries and fears were not unfounded, and all support I needed. I learnt about the thing called trisomy 18 that took my son , a better understanding of the condition, I learnt about prenatal testing, and choices that my own dr's did not offer, I gained life long friends with people who truly understand that the loss of our babies, never leaves you. I would recommend the Trisomy 18 Foundation for anyone on receiving the possible or definate diagnosis of Trisomy 18 in their child, I dread to think where I would be or how I would have coped without the foundation, I will be grateful forever.
