Previous Story

Hello, I was blessed on December 2nd, 2012 with a beautiful girl named Kara Lynn Cain.  Our journey started out a bit rocky and has had its ups and downs, but am so happy to have her in our lives.  I have three other children, ages 14, 12, and 10, and Kara is almost 11 months.  It has been a challenge but we now have a new normal and my other kids have adjusted well and have been extremely wonderful.  Karas father and I did not know prior to birth about her diagnosis.  Hard to imagine now that I have seen so many children diagnosed prenatally.  We even had a fetal echo and MD said all was “great”  My child was born with FOUR holes in her heart.  Since birth she has had a heart surgery, gtube placed, and tracheostomy.  With all that, she’s still smiling and is the light of our lives 🙂  I will be posting pictures soon as this is my first time on this site.  Good luck to all the trisomy moms out there!!!
