Day One: The Call that Changed Everything

Hi! I saw your post on Facebook and, even though we don’t know each other, felt so compelled to comment. I also had a baby girl that was diagnosed with Trisomy 18. We already had a healthy two year old girl, so the thought of baby #2 not being healthy just wasn’t something that ever crossed my mind. It was the hardest time of my life and I just kept wondering, “Why me? What did I do wrong?” God gives these special babies to special people — and it’s all part of His plan. We did decide to terminate our pregnancy, which is something I never thought I would EVER do, but that was what we felt was right for our baby and our family. I’m so sorry for you and your family, but know that you are not alone. There are so many women out here who have gone through this and are silently (and in this case, not silently ;)) supporting you and lifting you up. Whatever course of action you decide on will we the absolute right one.

Prayers and love —

Stacy Wilson
