How would I respond if I was told my preborn child had a genetic disorder? I hope I would respond like T.K. and Deidrea Lauxs did when they found out their baby boy, Thomas, had Trisomy 13.
As the video below will explain, babies with Trisomy 13 usually only live hours, maybe days once born. The video will also take you through the journey these parents lived with Thomas. The closing remark is very poignant: “We didn’t not terminate because we were hanging onto some hope that there was some medical mistake…we didn’t terminate because he’s our son.”
