Sawyer’s Story

Sawyer Belle Steenstra, Trisomy 13, 03/04/2017-03/04/2017, Eschenbach im der Oberpfalz, Bayern, Germany

Sawyer Belle was diagnosed with T13 in utero Thanksgiving 2016. Lobar holoproencephaly, cleft lip and palate, duplex kidneys, microphthalia, a VSD and truncus arteriosis as well as possible TOF are a few of the conditions she was facing. We carried her to full term planning a C-section on March 8, 2017 but went into labor early, she died in utero at 37 weeks and was delivered stillborn on March 4, 2017. She is our angel now. We are from Mississippi currently residing in Germany.
