I don't know how I would have handled the diagnosis of my daughter Alexa without the Trisomy 18 Foundation team and their online support. My first pregnancy 6 years ago, I was blessed with twin girls, Alexa and Sophia . We found out half-way through our pregnancy that one of our beautiful babies had Trisomy 18 and as you can imagine, we were devastated. Before then I had never heard of such a condition and so I searched the internet and came upon the Trisomy 18 Foundation's website which taught me so much. I was then contacted by an admin and then also paired with a volunteer who happened to be another mom that had gone through exactly what I was going through and helped me every step of the way. It's an amazing network of other families that are supportive and a foundation leader that fights for families and children with Trisomy 18 every day. I am forever grateful.
