Trisomy 13 Awareness Day

While the entire month of March is Trisomy Awareness month (as there are 3 kinds, 13, 18 & 21), today is Trisomy 13 Awareness day. 3/13 reminds us how our T13 babies have 3 of the 13th chromosome. My post last year about this special day!

While I think of my dear Noah every day, I especially remember him and many other precious babies like him today! I will continue to share his story, our journey and all he has taught me. I strive to educate others & break the silence surrounding infant death. Noah's life has a purpose and while he may not be here physically, his legacy continues on with every breath I breathe and will do so until the day I join him!

Don't forget to check out the stories of 13 sweet T13 babies, including my Noah, at Still Playing School. Thank you to those who continue to speak our babies name & remember them!!!


  1. Please can someone help me understand the correct colors for the ribbons, my niece past march of 2016 and i am doing an awareness fund for her. I want to know the right color ribbon to buy. Last year we did turquoise but not when i pull up online to order I see yellow.

    1. When I searched online, I saw a few different colors depending on the type of Trisomy. It looks like it might be blue?? That is so sweet of you to do an awareness fund in her memory. I am sure her parents greatly appreciate that you are remembering her!

  2. My brother and sister in law have a 3 year old that was born with mosaic trisomy 13. I am so thankful to be a part of his care in a small way, helping out whenever I can.


I enjoy hearing from each & every one of you! Thanks for taking the time to comment. :)
