Meet Susanna

The Whitehead Family live in Portland, Victoria Australia

Sue and John are the proud parents of Susanna Kate. Susanna was born on the 18th October 1996 with Trisomy 18. Sadly she couldn't stay with us very long and passed away on the 22nd December 1996.

The doctors detected Susanna's Trisomy was diagnosed before she was born and the doctors advised her parents to terminate the pregnancy. Her parents though, are glad that they didn't. As her mother says.........

"Susanna's life was not in vain. She taught us many things. I look at things very differently now. Things that I thought were important just aren't that important any more.... The world can be a sad place but I feel that it is much brighter for ALL our little ones having been born into it, even though for some it is a brief visit."
