This is my first post in a series of seventeen. 17 days of remembering Lilly's 17 months of life as we approach her one year angelversary.
My first ultrasound when I was pregnant with Lilly was on January 11, 2010. We did not find out if she were a boy or girl - she was too abnormally small for the technician to tell. We found out that instead she had several "soft markers" of a genetic disorder we had never heard of. Trisomy 18.
On March 18, 2010, I had a second ultrasound. This time we learned that our baby was a girl. That the Trisomy 18 "markers" were still there. And that she had a heart problem.
There were no problems in our hearts in loving Lilly dearly already.
