Edwards syndrome....

My sister went to her 12 week ultrasound excited to see the baby growing in her tummy. She knew something was off just by how the ultrasound tech was acting. Her doctor informed her that there was a chance her baby could have down syndrome or some other abnormality They took her blood and she waited....her doctor seemed optimistic..saying there was an 80% chance everything was fine. She got a call yesterday from her doctor who is 99% sure her baby has something called Edwards syndrome. Most Edwards syndrome babies dont live long enough to even be birthed. By law they are required to do one more test..the amniocentesis...if the outcome is still the same her Dr recommended termination as the baby probably won't survive anyways and if it did there would be no quality of life. I just feel so bad for her...has anyone else been told they had a baby with Edwards syndrome?? Any advice would be nicd
