    Your baby Keren, looks so perfect and beautiful. My nephew’s baby has Edwards Syndrome and has been on a breathing tube since her birth two weeks ago. The doctor says she will die without it so they have decided to remove it and let nature take its course. His baby has not even responded to his voice, and your baby was looking around and moving normally. Could you tell me more about her and how long she lived? Thank you.

    Hi Lori,
    So sorry to hear of your nephews daughter, it must be very difficult for him, and for all of you…it was a big shock for our whole family circle.

    About the breathing tube, I am sure the doctors do not make decisions like that lightly, and it must be the kindest thing for the wee baby. So hard to understand.
    Two weeks can be young enough, even for a healthy baby to respond to voices…we are trying to remember about our video, we think it might have been taken around six weeks, so she was a wee bit stronger by then.
    Keren was with us here for eight and a half precious weeks, and we cherish the memory of every minute.
    I hope they just try to enjoy the time they have, hold her, and take photos if they can.

    We are intending to update the site here, with more memories of Keren, but with a young family it is very difficult to find the time, we will try to get some more up soon.
    Thinking of your family,
    Glenn & Geraldine

    Oh Diane, sometimes it is impossible to understand the way things happen, and it is important to make the most of the precious time we have.
    Thinking of you, and your brothers family,
