  • I know someone who had a son who was born with Trisomy 18, please send me a message and I will gladly share her screen name, I know she would be more than happy to talk to you!

  • My baby was diagnosed last week with Trisomy 18. This is the hardest thing that I have ever been faced with. I wish you all the luck in the world and am praying for you and your baby. If you need to talk I am going through it too and would love to be able to share any support that I can!

  • Don't look at them odds. My daughter was born alive and she's now 2 months old. She is a complete trisomy 18. She has the VSD which is common in T-18 babies. There is a big support network on face book for T-18 mommies and families.
