Trisomy 18

It was confirmed today.  Olivia Grace has Trisomy 18.  This diagnosis is a fatal chromosone disorder.  The chances of survival are very slim. 

I do think today we have some peace of mind that we have answers to many questions.  I think before hand we had come to terms with many outcomes.  We had shifted our prayers from healing, to God taking the situation into his own hands.  He is the only one in life that knows our path.  We ultimately pray for wisdom and for God to lead us. 

"I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and fortress: my God; in Him will I trust." (Psalm 91:2)


  1. I am glad you have answers and glad you are at peace. I can't wait to give you guys a big hug! I love you guys.

  2. I am so impressed with the depth of your faith. I will also pray that God's will be done and that you will continue to feel His peace and comfort.
    I love you both,

  3. Kate I love you! I miss you tons and wish i could wrap my arms around you. I am praying for you and for your baby! Words cant describe how i feel for you. I love you, Linz
