Welcome to our blog! This blog is about our journey during our pregnancy with Sophie Ann. Sophie Ann was diagnosed with Trisomy 13 and HPE at 15 weeks gestation. This is a fatal diagnosis. We were offered termination, but we chose to give our little girl a chance at life. It was a very difficult journey filled with lots of emotions, but in the end, it was worth every minute. All 9 minutes that we held her. You have probably found this blog from the referral of a friend, a news story, the Trisomy 13 website, Focus on the Family's website, ect. Please hang around and read all about our journey, I am sure you will be inspired and encouraged in your faith. Our journey began on September 21 of 2007. You will need to go to the bottom of the blog and click on old posts, this will take you back to 07'. If you are in this same situation, please don't hesitate to e-mail me. I would love to talk with you or put you in contact with another mother under similar circumstances.
This blog will also include information about our China adoption. We started the international adoption process in May of 07, just 2 months before we conceived our Sophie Ann. We are looking forward to bringing home "Lily" sometime in the next 6-12 months.
