My little girl is a carrier. Not one of my kids is spared the Fragile X gene. Well, I wanted to know and now I know.
I was hysterical for about a half hour and then I decided I was done being upset. I realize how lucky I am to have her at all, and there are many people who have it much, much worse.

Sorry to hear this news. I can understand your being upset. Maybe by the time she is ready to have kids, medical advances will make it a non-issue.
What a beautiful picture. I know the news is hard.
Hi, this is my first visit to your blog...I had kind of taken a break from blogging (good old facebook!). Yes, the news is hard to get, but hopefully, she'll have greater options when she's older. All four of our children, 20,18,16,and 3, have the full mutation. The 20 year old, our daughter, is one of the lucky ones. We wouldn't have guessed she had the gene if we hadn't had her tested when she was 12. We had her tested so that we could participate in a study, but because of the results, we weren't eligible. She took it in stride when I told her, and she still does!
It's nice to "meet" you. Your kids are adorable!
