Grandma Spiehs and Aunt Terra

  • Both Grandma Spiehs and Aunt Terra are carriers to pass down what's called Trisome 18.
  • Grandma Spiehs had one baby before my other sisters and I came around that was Trisome 18. Lisa was her name. She did not live very long.
  • Both times Aunt Terra was pregnant with Evan and Elijah, I was pregnant with Mica and Isaak. I was so worried that one of her children would end up being a Trisome 18 baby. As it turns out, they were fine. Evan is a carrier, but Elijah is like me and is not a carrier at all.

This is such a devastating syndrome. I work with someone who had a similar experience with her first child.
