You are not alone in carring your child with Spina Bifida to term. Here is what Angeline’s dad has to say to parents who have been given the adverse prenatal diagnosis of Spina Bifida:

“From the first day when we saw our daughter's heart beating on the ultrasound monitor, Angeline became a real, living member of our family. Since then, we were committed to do anything humanly possible to improve her chances of having a better life. Emily and I are delighted with our little angel and we thank God for having given us the opportunity of partaking in one of His miracles. And we thank Him every day for having given us Angeline Marie.”
