Hi Kat,

We have good friends whose second child has Mosaic, a form of the same illness. I'm really sorry for your loss and am sure you know about the support groups there are around including, livingwithtrisomy13.org/, www.trisomy.org/index.php

take care.

I no what u mean 22 months is fantastic isnt it, When i had her they thought id keep all her problem from her dad my husband as he hadnt mentioned how ill she was, it took them 3 days to visit her and the rest only ever visit when she was christened only ever seen the rest of inlaws at christmas and birthdays so they never really bothered anyway
