Diagnosis Confirmed

Tonya got a call from the genetic counselor this morning. The results of her amniocentesis have come back, and a diagnosis of Trisomy 13 is confirmed for our unborn daughter.

It was just a short phone call, so we don't have a lot of additional information at this time. We will be talking with a perinatologist next week about follow-up care, so we may be able to tell you more then.

It will be nice when all the questions can be answered. God will continue to comfort the family.

I had a son born with full trisomy 13 April 25th, 2008. I don't have all the answers, but I would love to pray for and support you. Please feel free to contact me anytime.

Prayers for you and your family. I lost a baby son at 22 weeks of pregnancy due to a severe health problem I had that we never knew about. At that time, hubbie and I mastered that very valuable lesson- taking it one step at a time. As he put it, "We can only take this life one day at a time... and when we can't we'll take it one hour at a time... and if we can't even do that, we'll take it one minute at a time."

Praying for strength for you and Tonya.

Prayers for your family and your sweet baby girl. I saw the link to your blog on a forum that I occasional read at, which is how I ended up here.
