Trisomy 18

Welcome to McCoy’s Story: a unique blog to follow McCoy through his diagnosis of Trisomy 18. Our family loves McCoy unconditionally. Chromosomes should not determine the value of a life. Our goal for McCoy is for him to know immense love.  He will be apart of our family for the rest of time. McCoy will teach us immeasurable lessons of life and love. 

This is a place to keep up with McCoy, show support and encouragement for our family, and recognize miscarriage,

still birth, infant and child loss.
