This is my cousin Josephine.
She was born on October 22. Shortly after she was born she was diagnosed with Trisomy 18, or Edward's Syndrome. She will not live long-trisomy 18 is genetic disorder where there is extra material from the 18th chromosome (like extra material from the 21st chromosome causes down syndrome.) About 95% die in utero. Of liveborn infants, only 50% live to 2 months, and only 5-10% will survive their first year of life.
