Our story started 35 years ago. We had waited eight years for the birth of our first child. Just like anyone else carrying a baby, we thought that everything would be perfect. The time finally came for our first child to be born. On May 21st, our little bundle of joy was born, a girl, weighing 4 lbs 8 1/2 ounces. She was adorable.
She was born at a small hometown hospital in Brockport, NY. We spent every minute with her even when they discharged me and said she needed to stay and gain a little weight. After 10 days, we took her home from the hospital. Everyday was a struggle to get in enough food. Her doctor told us he wanted to get her in for genetic testing, but didn't provide the reasoning behind his logic.
