I don't know a child with Lupus but my BFF, Alli, was diganosed 2 years ago with Lupus. She is an African American female. She struggles sometimes but, overall, lives a normal, healthy life. Infact, she's due with her first baby in the next few weeks!!!
I know she takes Plaqnil (sp?) daily and, her pregnancy is high risk but- no complications as of yet (and hopefully never!).
Thinking of before she got pregnant... she complained of her joints hurting and, that she was super tired. She told me that there are people will VERY worse Lupus than she has- she said that there are many support groups but, overall- they do not know much about the auto-immue disease... Good Luck too you and your daughter- it might be a bumpy road but, I do believe that she will lead a overall normal life!
