Genetic Testing in Children: Navigating the System
When my daughter was born, I was suddenly thrust into the world of human genetics, a place that I never thought I would find myself nor would I wish to be. My daughter, Campbell, was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate that had not been detected on ultrasound. There were several other indicators after she was born that she might have a genetic syndrome instead of an isolated cleft lip and palate. She was administered numerous genetic tests including a blood test that would analyze her chromosomes and hopefully find an explanation for her symptoms. After multiple testing over six years, two geneticists and numerous other professionals, she still remains undiagnosed.
