When our daughter was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 in the 20th week of our pregnancy we were devastated, confused and overwhelmed. The Trisomy 18 foundation was there for us with immediate support. I could not have made it through the rest of my pregnancy without having other moms to talk to who were going through the same thing. The odds of having a baby with Trisomy 18 are small and therefor it is hard to find people who can understand all the complex issues and emotions. The support group message boards enabled me to talk with people who had the same questions, concerns, hopes and fears as myself. I was went from feeling overwhelmed and helpless to feeling more in control and fully informed of the possibilities and choices I had as a parent. I would have never thought of making a birth plan for example, and asking for certain considerations from the maternity staff. I feel fortunate to have had 3 days with our daughter. The foundation also provides a place for extended family to learn more about the condition and to show support.
