Donovan blev født den 13. november 2010 og boede i 16 timer. Min graviditet var ret normal indtil min 19 ugers ultralyd. De fandt ud af, at han havde forstørrede ventrikler, kort lårben og en diafragmatisk brok. De insisterede på en fostervandsprøve, som et par dage senere kom klar tilbage. Først en uge senere modtog jeg et opkald, der sagde, at han havde Pallister Killians syndrom, ekstra kromosom 12. De henviste os straks til en genetisk rådgiver, der ikke kendte andet end et par udskrifter fra Internettet. Vi gennemførte graviditeten og regnede med, hvad resultatet vi nogensinde vil klare. Han fortsatte med at vokse, væsken i hans hjerne forsvandt, men de anede ikke, hvor dårlig brok var. Jeg endte med at få 2 amnio-reduktioner. Min læge besluttede at fremkalde mig efter 39 uger den 12. november. Jeg målte 47 uger på grund af væsken. Efter 19 timers arbejdskraft og en nødsituation blev Donovan Anthony født med en vægt på 14 kg. Han var smuk, men kunne ikke trække vejret alene, hans lunger var af et 24 uger gammelt foster og ville ikke være foreneligt med livet. Han tjente sine vinger kl. 21.15. Han var perfekt, efter at alle rør blev taget af ham, havde han nogle tegn på PKS som lavtliggende ører, høj pande, hår manglede på siderne af hovedet og en høj buet gane. Jeg ville ønske, at der havde været en anden valgdeltagelse, men jeg er taknemmelig for mine 5 sunde børn og ville gøre det hele igen bare for at have givet ham en chance. Han vil altid være vores skytsengel.
