Review for TRISOMY 18 FOUNDATION, Woodbridge, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have known this non-profit since it was just a spark in the CEO/Founder's eye. I found out in May of 2003 that the baby girl I was carrying had a genetic condition called Trisomy 18. Not knowing anything of this diagnosis, I searched the internet and came across Victoria and her e-list. I was also about the 50th person to ever join their website, just after they started. I can tell you without hesitation that I have no idea how I would have made it through my pregnancy, my daughter's short life, and eventually her passing without the information provided, knowledge offered, and support so freely given. In a world where people can be so self centered, the love and support of the ever-changing clientele at the website, the sharing of our stories, and often just knowing that there is someone else out there going through something similar (because we all know that every story is completely unique) can be life changing. I love that Victoria has turned the loss of her own precious child to this diagnosis into a force for research, support, information... When my daughter passed away, I asked for donations to this foundation in lieu of flowers, I believe so strongly in it's mission.
