Maggie was Born in January 2021. When she was born we thought she had down syndrome because she had a lot of the same facial features. Low set ears, almond shaped eyes with the epicanthal fold, short neck, and flattened nasal bridge. They sent off a genetic test that came back showing a duplication on chromosome 10. We are almost 6 months old but doing very very well. She is small, and has low muscle tone. But she is rolling, holding her neck very well and loves to blow raspberries. No major medical issues but we are watching the kidneys as this seems to be a big problem with this genetic disorder.
