When Marley was 1 day old, a geneticist was summoned to my hospital room by our pedi. Among many of the things she said about Marley she made a comment I'll never forget:
"I see kids with genetic syndromes everywhere I go. I can just take one look at a kid and know that they have a syndrome, even if their own parents don't know it".
I think about that comment a lot and find myself staring at other babies and children wondering if I too can see their secret genetic syndrome. I also find her comment kind of comforting knowing that I'm not as alone as I think I am. ?
It's really fascinating that we're all not as "perfect" as we think we are.
I also think it's a fukking miracle that anyone is born without any issues.?
