My name is Geraldine Ramirez and I'm a stay at home Mum to Marlow and a wife to Michael. I use to work in journalism and communications and loved telling other people's stories. This is the first time I've told my own.

 In June 2018 our second child was diagnosed with Trisomy 13. This is the story of our family's journey from diagnosis through to delivery.

I've received so much comfort from the hundreds of stories I've read online - sad, beautiful stories about families that have chosen to carry babies with similar conditions. Their stories made me feel so much less alone. I hope one day this might do the same.

We also have so many wonderful people in our lives loving, praying for and supporting us, that want to know how we're all doing. This seemed like a good way to tell part of our story to those who want to hear it.
