As soon as she was born, it was immediately obvious to me as the nurses rushed into the delivery room that she had Trisomy 2q Monosomy 13 (Meaning, duplication of 2q on 13q with deletion at the attachment site), a rare genetic disorder that runs in my family line.
We hope that friends and family will fully love and adore baby Christina as they would any other child. We hope everyone we know will get to know her and love her. Don't be afraid of saying the wrong thing and don't be afraid to ask us questions! We are still the same old Nelsons!
I know that we are blessed to have baby Christina in our family. I am so grateful to be her mother and I pray that I will be able to give her the care and love she needs. I know we will have challenges and hardships in this life, but that we will also have great joy and happiness. We do not know how long she will be on this earth with us but for how ever long it is we are so grateful to have her in our family.
