Our sweet baby girl, Gracelyn Louise Tusa, was born on September 27th at 1:52pm. She weighed 3lbs 2oz and was 15 inches long. She was welcomed into the world with snuggles with family and shortly after passed peacefully in her mom’s arms. Gracelyn was diagnosed early on with Trisomy 18. Knowing her time could be short, her family embraced the time they had with her and created many memories as a family. Gracie Lou, we love you!
