Update 5/16/2014: Our Baby Kevin was delivered full term and only lived about an hour and 15 minutes. Every moment of his life was a gift and we are so grateful to our Father in Heaven for blessing us with this sweet boy.
Our story begins in January of 2012. As I’ve read other family’s stories I’ve noticed almost all of the Dr’s who diagnose our babies with Trisomy 13/18 have the same things to say:
The baby is not compatible with life
The chances of the baby being born alive and to term are slim
If the baby is born alive it probably won’t live long
The chances of the mother having pre-eclampsia is higher
My Dr used the word “fatal” repeatedly
They also ask if you’d like to terminate the pregnancy
What the Dr’s don’t tell us is:
These babies are too perfect for this life
To appreciate every minute of the pregnancy and the baby growing inside you because that baby is a wonderful gift and you’ll miss having him/her inside you after they’re born
You can enjoy this pregnancy as much or more as one with a “healthy” baby
These babies will teach you incredible lessons if you’ll let them
You can feel heaven near as you trust God and His will for your baby
So grateful for the blessings our Baby Kevin brought and still brings to our family.
