About four months into her pregnancy, our niece found out that her baby had Trisomy 13, a devastating chromosomal defect. They decided to continue the pregnancy with the hope that Baby T would be born alive and that they would have the opportunity to spend a little time with him before he was called home to his Heavenly Father. Baby T was born at home at 7-1/2 months and lived an amazing hour, surrounded by his loving parents and six big brothers.

Precious life, though brief. God bless and comfort all of you.
So heartbreaking to see and read, Nancy, but it’s good that precious Baby T had the love of his family even if only for a short while. xx
Thank you Sylvia. It was an amazing experience.
