I am so utterly devistated for my friend Lisa

No one should have to find out via ultrasound that their baby is incompatible with life. My poor friend Lisa has been told this not once but twice. Her first child Lily was diagnosed with Potter's Syndrome (basically no kidney function what so ever and with no hope for survival) at 22 weeks. They made the most incredibly tough decision a parent is ever faced with and Lily was born to Heaven 10-17-02 . Lisa and her husband were told this was a fluke occurance and shouldn't happen again. After a long TTC process they were blessed with another pregnancy that had seemingly gone well until about 2 weeks ago when they had a questionable ultrasound. They said they couldn't really tell what was going on yet and to come back in 2 weeks. Yesterday they were told that it had happened again. Their new little baby 19 weeks along has the same condition as their first angel. They are devistated as are all of the rest of us on the Pregnancy After Loss board I chat on. It's just so incredibly unfair that Lisa and her husband will have to say goodbye to another baby. If you are the praying type .. please say a prayer for Lisa and her family.
