I wondered if you know your carrier status? I would love to hear your thoughts on carrier testing, if your mom is a carrier. My older daughter is 17. I am a carrier. I have left the decision as to when to have a carrier test up to her. Recently I asked her if she was interested in finding out. She said she would be happy if she was not a carrier but at this point didn't want to know if she was. I just wondered if you had been through this? As I was not found to be a carrier until after all of my children were born I didn't have some of these issues that my daughters may face. I would appreciate any insight you have.
Congrats on your engagement. It is great you joined us here too. I am sure it is a comfort to your mother? I have a 16 year old daughter, that I wish would join too, but she doesn't want to so I don't push it. Any advice??
Kory has touched my heart, just by watching the video and reading your moms page.
