“She has been the light of our lives.”
Emma Conaway, Trisomy 18, 9/7/2013, Arlington, TX
Emma was diagnosed prenatally with Trisomy 18. She is our bonus baby, the youngest of five girls. We did not do any additional testing because it would not change our decision to have her. She has been the light of our lives. We have definitely had challenges at times getting care for her. She now has a great team of doctors. She’s had heart and abdominal surgery. We are working on getting her to sit up and bear some weight on her legs. She has her own FB page: Emma’s Trisomy 18 Journey.
