You are not alone in carring your child with Cri Du Chat to term.This is what Janine’s mom has to say about the implications of an adverse prenatal diagosis such as Cri du Chat syndrome:

“However, when the very life of a baby is involved, as in prenatal diagnosis of a serious condition, I would hope that all decisions come down on the side of life. We didn’t know that Janine would have Cri du Chat syndrome before she was born, but we cannot imagine her any other way. She is greatly loved and has blessed us in ways we never could have imagined.”
