Stephanie and Adam Hines Baby Hines Twins

First post: Feb 9, 2017 Latest post: May 29, 2017
Stephanie and I would like to announce that we are expecting
twin babies June 10, 2017. The babies are fraternal, one boy and one girl.  Our baby boy is healthy and growing as
expected.  Our hearts are saddened to reveal
that our baby girl has been diagnosed with Trisomy 18.  Trisomy 18 is a chromosomal abnormality in
which the cells of the body carry an extra 18th chromosome and that
occurs with random frequency.  Children
with Trisomy 18 have abnormalities in many parts of the body caused
by the third 18 chromosome.  Due to the
severity of the abnormalities many of the children die before birth or within
the first month.  We ask for your
continued prayers that both babies carry full term to protect the health of
both our little boy and girl. 

As you can imagine, there will be good days and there will
be bad days.  There will be days when we
feel comfortable talking about progress and days where we won’t want to talk at
all.  We ask for your sensitivity toward our
privacy.  We will do our best to post
updates and details on this site as we know more information so our friends and
family can follow our journey.  God Bless
and thank you for your continued prayers during this difficult time.
