The door opened, and a doctor came, a high risk pregnancy specialist. “We have reason to believe that your child has Fryns Syndrome,” he said. Tears gushed out of me, while the doctor watched pityingly. He went on talking, explaining to us that Fryns syndrome was fatal. The baby, who would be born with a host of mental and physical defects, might live for a short time, but would die within a few months.
