    There were markers during the pregnancy, so we pretty much knew. Once Lily was born, we pretty much knew. The signs were all there. After the confirmation via the genetic testing, there was honestly a feeling of fear as I did not know what needed to do next. Lily has a twin(typical) so I was afraid that I would not be able to give both newborns the attention they deserved.

    I was in my early 20s when my daughter was born with an extra chromosome. While enjoying the beauty of swirling hormones I have to say that the Dr. revealing his suspicion that our beautiful daughter was born with something extra was not something I could fully grasp. My husband however was more verbal in his surprise insisting on the appropriate tests to prove that Dr. wrong.
