Baby Daphne

I'm sure most of you have seen this post before, this shows you how important it really is!! Please take the time to read this post, and keep this sweet baby and her family in your prayers!! {this post is taken from the amazing Adventures of Superman and Mrs. S}


This is Daphne, and she was born with Trisomy 18, a genetic disorder that is caused by there being 3 pairs of chromosome 18 rather than the normal 2.

The large majority of babies with Tri18 never make it past the womb and the ones that do, are rarely strong enough to live to see outside the NICU and hospital walls. Most deaths are caused by heart abnormalities, loss of kidney function, and other organ failures.
