Iwantto. Oh, what a difficult time. I second Ninja - have a look at unique's
website. They have leaflets for most 'rare' chromosome disorders and an 5p13.2
imbalance would fall under those. Don't hesitate to email them, too. They have been tremendously helpful for us and can get you in touch with other parents.
I don't want to give you false hope, but sometimes their can be gains/deletions that are not clinical and are considered familial variants. Try and get an appointment with the geneticist soon.
