Amazing Grace’s Story

“… her life brought so much ….words can’t express!!”

Amazing Grace Browning, Trisomy 18, Nabb, IN, USA, 04/27/2013 – 06/27/2013

Amazing Grace BrowningBorn with full T18 in a twin pregnancy with her brother, Wesson Gauge Browning.  Born at 32 weeks and 2 days.  Grace weighed 2.2lbs and Gauge weighed 3.7lbs.  Both born with heart defects. Grace had VSD, PDA & DORV .  Her heart defects were severe and not correctable with surgery. The day she was born, she survived a surgery to disconnect her esophagus from her bronchial tube & place a G-tube in.  She dropped her stats daily into single digits and wasn’t expected to live more than a week or so. She remained on the vent throughout her short life of 61 days.  She smiled, made eye-contact, sucked her thumb & gained about 1.5 lbs.  She was and is one of the greatest blessings of our lives! We had 5 other healthy children before delivering these very special twins. I was just shy of turning 37.  As many say and feel “what a loss” ….she was but…I also say, “what gain”‘ as her life brought so much ….words can’t express!! We documented their journey on Facebook.  The page now has a different title but the story can be read beginning back in early May.  Here is the link https://www.facebook.com/gaugemanT21/posts/321218601336732:0 For those who may read this, considering not carrying your baby to term, this momma here can say assuredly…give your precious gift a chance!! They have more to give than what you could ever imagine if you would only open your heart!! Life should not be measured by a national standard….for life is too big and beautiful! Let the measures be of the heart
