Trisomy 18 Stories


You are not alone in carrying your child with Trisomy 18 to term. This is what Grace’s mom has to say to parents who have been given the adverse prenatal diagnosis of Trisomy 18:

“My experience was that she was a miracle, and not a diagnosis—she was just a little baby. I am so blessed that I had the support and faith to carry her. I know that in situations like ours the pressure to terminate is so very great. I thank God we didn’t listen to the doctors the day she was diagnosed. We would have missed out on the blessing that she was. She is gently guiding me each and every day to reach out and let other moms know that there is hope.”
