Mieko Johnson, Trisomy 18, St. Paul, MN, 3/9/2004 – 7/11/2008
Mieko was a very special little girl who made a big impact on the world during her four and a half years. She was truly a gift to us. Mieko was diagnosed prenatally with a genetic disorder called Trisomy 18. It’s the presence of an extra #18 chromosome. In our case, they think it was a random occurrence.
