Headed to Boston today for a return visit to the geneticist.

Not gonna lie, I’m a bit nervous. Not sure if the doctor will have more questions… or some answers.

The scary part? I’m not sure which I’d rather hear.

Vivienne just so darn perfect to us. In every way. So it’s kinda hard to talk with specialists about “limitations”, “genetic testing” and “syndromes”.

I’ll let y’all know the news, whatever it is. I gotta say, it’s been a big comfort to have y’all along for the ride, as we’ve waited (and might possibly wait some more) for the answers about Vivienne’s medical diagnosis.

Say a prayer for our girl, if you think of it. We’d really appreciate it.



  1. Lifting you all up this morning!

  2. Praying for sweet Vivi!

  8. Tara Anderson says:

    Praying for you and Vivi!!!!

  9. Lost and Found says:

    You're right, she is already perfect and will soar regardless of any label given to her. All that matters is that she believes that as she gets older.

  10. I am fearfully and wonderfully made – regardless of the answers she is a child of God and greatly loved! I will remember her and you in my prayers today!

  11. I will be praying that no matter the outcome you will be comforted by the Lords never ceasing presence.

    Praying and so understand where you are. We just got another diagnosis today for our sweet girl. Haven't had the courage lately to face the geneticist again but I know it is time. I also know we'll be seeing him for our Li'l Dude too.

    Anyway hugs, be safe and thank you for sharing so from the heart about the "big bad word": syndrome.

  36. Melissa says:

    She's perfectly and wonderfully made, no matter what. Prayers are with you!

  37. Will say a prayer Stefanie!!!! Come what may, she is perfect and perfectly made for your family!!!

  38. Jessica says:

    I'm praying for you too. She is definitely perfect no matter what. I love seeing all your sweet updates on her. I just love how the older kids fight over her. So sweet.

  39. Prayers offered for all you guys (however it turns out effect the whole family!) Ya know – like you – we've chased all the 'necessary testing' etc – but I wonder sometimes – do we really care? I mean – it's not going to change anything right? Still our child – still loved – still a family member – always will be – whatever is needed – you get the idea. But yeah – still we have the testing….makes me wonder sometimes why we really want to know…

    hugs – holding you guys close –

    aus and co.

  40. Desiree' says:

    You are so blessed to be parent to this precious little girl. Will be praying.
    I understand the teary feeling, there myself. Wondering if I even want to know, would it really change things?? We have three appointments next week, ortho, eye and gentics…
