When my Mom was pregnant, she was told about my rare condition and they thought I would not survive. When I was born with Trisomy 18, my family was determined to bring me home from the NICU. I weighed 3 pounds 11 oz and was 16 in long at birth. I stayed in the NICU for 48 days. I have a defect on my heart but it has balanced itself out perfectly. My family lives a long way from the medical center and I'm so happy to be here with them, getting lots of love and snuggles. I'm still learning how to take a bottle and am working on all my therapies. I'm thriving at home and weigh 6 pounds 2 oz now!!
