I Didn’t Come Home With a Baby, But I Still Gave Birth
If you are considering induction/early termination and want a safe space to talk about your options, or perhaps you’ve already induced and lost your baby, please join this Facebook group that I’ve created to be that support group and safe space.

Trisomy 13 Stories
If you’d like to share your story here, I’d be honored. I’d love to read the stories and learn, and I’d love to celebrate your baby’s life on this page. I find that the stories found online are under representing those that chose to terminate their pregnancies, and those that chose to carry to term but put their child through no lifesaving measures. I’d love this page to fill that online void. Those parents need a voice so they don’t feel alone. So many have chosen this route… we need to hear about it more. Please send me a message if you or someone you know is interested.
