After a fertility struggle, Jessica Young Egan and her husband Josh were to the moon when they welcomed their incredible baby girl Gwendolyn.
Egan wrote about her daughter on Facebook, offering support and love to Down syndrome parents all over the world. She also shared a lovely photo of Gwendolyn with a ‘review’ of her new angel.
People fell in love with her review and her story quickly went viral!
“When I placed my order I said, ‘Regular amount of chromosomes, please!’ That’s what everyone else got and what I wanted too. They called me shortly after my order was in production and said ‘Great news, we went ahead and upgraded you to extra chromosomes for free! You’ll receive the extra chromosomes with your completed order in 9 months.’
“What?! I was mad! All the other orders I had seen displayed via perfect Instagram posts did NOT have extra chromosomes.
“Well I decided that receiving my order with extra chromosomes was better than not receiving an order at all, so I settled in to wait for this surprise upgrade to arrive.
“I have now had my order for two months and am writing this review to let others know the upgrade to extra chromosomes is amazing!! If offered, definitely take it! I posted some photos below of the finished product and you can see the extra chromosome is so worth it – it is extra cute, extra special, and extra-ordinary! So much extra joy. Would purchase again for sure.”
Her post has 75,000 shares and over 350,000 reactions on Facebook. In another post, Egan expressed her joy at daughter’s story being shared by thousands of people all over the world.
“Gwen has now been shared in news articles, websites, and Facebook pages around the world. From Florida to Singapore to Australia to the UK, she has been loved and written about. And it isn’t slowing down yet!
“To think we could save a baby’s life or help a family who is struggling with a new Down syndrome diagnosis to feel some hope is all we could ever ask for.”
