Laney was diagnosed with Microduplication 22q11.21 on June 25, 2010. That day changed our lives forever. She has struggled since birth, and after five years, we finally had a reason as to why the struggles were there. They continue, however we have been blessed with a wonderful team of doctors here in Michigan at DeVos Children’s Hospital. We found out 6 weeks later that the duplication came from her father, and then last year the week of Christmas it was confirmed her older brother has it also. This doesn’t change her, or her brother. This just gives us a reason as to why they have the issues they do medically. Our lives have been forever changed by 22q. Laney continues daily to prove to me how amazing children are. She has overcome some serious hurdles, and even though they keep coming, we keep pushing through.
