It all started when…
2005 I moved and met my husband got a call that I needed to be genetically tested because my father and siblings tested positive for 22q deletion syndrome. I wait and wait then...
Imagine getting a phone call from your doctor after a genetic test that it was positive for a deletion in you’re dna. That moment you are told there is something fundamentally wrong with you and your world turns upside down.
Confused because you look normal like the other people in your work place and there isn’t anything that sands out. Learning you were indeed born to stand out on a world that is unkind to people who are different
only it’s not si-fi it’s you’re new reality.
Imagine as you try to pull the pieces of the puzzle of your own life together that didn’t make any since that this test is real you give birth to a beautiful child who also has the same genetic disorder.
As she grows up you learn more about yourself then you can ever dream of and meet new people along the way who help you understand and shape your life for the better.
