Requesting Thoughts and Prayers


My Niece Emma Rose will soon be born. I debated posting this because I want to respect my brother and his families privacy as much as possible. Emma has Trisomy 18. Her prognosis is unknown and terrifying. Many babies with Trisomy 18 are not able to survive even to full term. Miss Emma has already shown us that she is a fighter. She has managed to hang on and grow in the belly of her Mother who wants so much to be able to meet her. Emma's birth date is rapidly approaching. We are all hoping to meet her sometime in the next several weeks. No one knows what is going to happen. I am asking for as many thoughts and prayers as possible for Emma and her family. She is already loved so much and needs all of the help she can get.
