On May 22 my boyfriend and I found out that our baby girl had Down Syndrome due to Trisomy21. At this point I was 23weeks pregnant and we both grew a strong love and want for her. We had some more tests done and found out that her heart wasn't very healthy. We decided to end the pregnancy and ever since I've been confused. Having to make that decision tore us both in half. After delivering our stillborn we held her and she was beautiful. I'm feeling slightly guilty for that choice because I'm still wishing on a miracle. If we had kept her, would she be healthy, or were all the results from the tests really accurate? I feel a bit of anger inside because we had to make that decision. Is it okay to give up someone you love so much just because of test results? Please help me figure this out, I'm lost with my thoughts.
