London (Rose) Bairfield, Trisomy 18, 07/12/2015, Ofallon, IL
God planted this little Rose so it could be watered and nature.
It was the Fall of October when I discovered my sweet baby London(Rosie) would be the greatest gift from god to our family. Rose, despite her hardships such as subchronic hemmorages, low birth weight, cardiac Cather and nurses doubting her surviving birth, Rose preserved through her hardships. At times she utilize a post on meter, which monitors her oxygen levels, feeding tubes if needed, and oxygen tanks. Now at age two, Rose’s mobility is limited due to her lack of muscle control but with the help of charities who donate equipment, she’s able to utilize a wheelchair custom made for her and a device by Upsee which able her to stand up right. I never feared being a parent of a Trisomy baby girl, it was more so how health providers negative perspective about Trisomy 18 lives weren’t compatible with others human being is what broke my heart. Little that they knew that Rose was born into a family of God fighting people who don’t leave anyone behind. God planted this little Rose so it could be watered and nature. Rose is the best thing that ever happened to our family.
