I have SMA3
I’m 36 and was diagnosed at age 5. I just had my first baby almost 5 months ago. It’s tough. So worth it but I’m struggling during the day with him due to lack of strength and covid restrictions.

I’m 44 & was diagnosed at 2 years old. I hav an 11 year old step son we raise full time (his biological mother left him at 8 months). I did have genetic testing at 24 with my first husband, but found out 2 years after that he could not produce children & I decided that God was sending me a sign. I’m very happy with how the situation turned out!
