It sounds interesting though probably not going to be a reality for while. Any treatment can be potentially contraversial but at least this is more positive than planning for more intensive pre natal screening.

WOW !! How did that happen - I was going to say that the girl was impossibly cute too !!

oh - I posted on another thread - she featured in their Annual Report for the AGM in 2003 - they like to do a feature of a baby, school aged child and an adult as part of their Annual Report and dd1 was asked to be the baby.

We got some gorgeous photos and of course we had to sign off her image on those pics. The best thing was we got copies of every photo taken that day.

I used to love her hair - still love it.

in fact that baby is sat here - just home from school playing hopscotch with her 3yo sister whilst her mad baby sister almost 18 months old runs around the house.

pmsl - just showed dd1 the pic and she said cute! ( her latest word) she does not believe that it is her - she keeps saying it is dd3.
