    Dear rainbow baby, please don’t leave me without a rainbow.

    How is this even possible? How is this our reality? Amniocentesis… chromosomal abnormality… soft markers… trisomies… possibly incompatible with life… These can not be words spoken to me about my baby. Can they?

Did I really have to make that decision, the one with a 1 in 400 chance of miscarriage? Am I really waiting on results from that test that could completely change the course of our life? Could my next weeks really be filled with gut wrenching…
