    I feel sad for Gary and Amie but also feel that they have the support from each other and their families, not to mention the team, the club and the fans. They will win through.
    He reminds him of the guys, close-set, slow, and never rattled, who were play-makers on the team. (John Updike, seeing Josh Kennedy in a crystal ball)

    Knowing before hand will be a different situation.
    Not sure which I prefer.

    I have 2 healthy children and 10 grandchildren (all of which are healthy) so cannot relate to this situation.
    Yes Jarrad & Clementine knew that their baby had a heart problem before her birth - it had been picked up in a scan. Jarrad talked about this in an interview some months later. But I think from what he said they hoped surgery would repair the damage after she was born which sadly was not the case despite several operations.

    A diagnosis of anencephaly tragically can lead to only one outcome. From what Amie and Gary have said they know and have come to accept that, and the inevitable mix of joy and grief the birth of their twins will bring.

    Both situations would be heart breaking.

    I agree. Their use of instagram on this is an example of social media at its best. There are a large number of supportive and loving comments on both their accounts. These include probably half a dozen from people who have been affected by anencephaly, including mothers who have given birth to babies afflicted with this cruel condition. Their stories are both heartbreaking and uplifting.
