Hello my name is Kari. My husband Jared and I are expecting our first baby in April. Him Name is Ellyot Cyril Clancy.
My son has a chromosomal abnormality that can cause a wide range of health and developmental issues, It is called DiGeorge Syndrome. As of right now we only know he has a heart defect and possibly a growth hormone deficiency. He may have many or only a few of the symptoms, with varying severity.... but we will not know till he is born and as the years pass. I have NEVER loved someone so much and I have yet to even meet this little guy.
There is a foundation that is dedicated to raising awareness of 22q/VCFS/DiGeorge Syndrome and reaching out to families with children with DiGeorge Syndrome, and the charities that support them, to help families like mine deal with difficult situations we face each day. http://www.dempsterfamilyfoundation.org

Hi im due April 9th with a boy!! were pretty close in due dates! have a good day!
Hey Kari, sorry I haven't message you in awhile, we are still waiting for hubby to get paid from his GI Bill for school so we have been a little low on money the past couple weeks :( He has drill this weekend but if all goes well I am hoping we can meet up for that lunch in the next few weeks :) Hope you are feeling well!
Awww, that sounds like a fun job! I need to take Liv to swim lessons, she just loves water! She is always sticking her whole head under during bath time, lol :) I found your fb profile and sent you a friend request, i am on fb all the time :)
Well Ellyot will definitely be in good hands at AI! :) I thought about going to St. Frances but I am terrified of driving in Wilmington, lol! I am originally from the farming area of South Jersey so to me Wilmington is a huge city and it scares me to death, lol! But I do love Christiana, they seem to be amazing and I have a few friends who have delivered there and I have only gotten good reviews :) with my daughter I delivered in NJ and I HATED it... I mean I moved being close to my family so they could visit often, but the hospital and nurses were horrible. So I am excited about delivering at Christiana this time around. Maybe we could do lunch at Friendly's in Lantana since I have a two year old and they are pretty kid friendly there :) And you and your hubby can get a feeling of how it is to dine out with a little one, lol, it definitely changes things :)
Oh that must be tough... I can't imagine how hard that must be for you, but thankfully there have been so many medical advances when it comes to infants now and there are some great hospitals nearby, like AI Dupont, they are amazing there! My 2 year old daughter has had two surgeries there and they have been so wonderful! I also use Nemours as her pediatrician. I will be delivering at Christiana hospital, I see Dr. Wisneiski at First State Women's care which is at Christiana hospital. Where will you be delivering? Do you have to go somewhere with a better NICU then Christiana? I believe they are a level 3 NICU.
Hey hun, I am doing great! I had placenta previa for awhile and just found out Monday it has moved and I am in the clear for a vaginal delivery! :) I had my 30 week check today so now only 3 more bi weekly appointments and then its time for weekly appointments :) How are you and your little man doing? I hope all is going well! You must be getting excited since you are getting pretty close to the end now :)
Hi Kari, I just saw your profile and noticed that we both live in Hockessin, DE and we are due about a month apart. I just thought maybe if you need someone to talk to about pregnancy stuff we could talk to eachother :)
