When one woman discovered she was pregnant, she was consumed by excitement. More than anything, she couldn’t wait to set eyes on her baby at her eight-week scan. However, not long after her ultrasound technician had turned on the screen, she realized what the image there was telling her – and her heart sank.
That woman was Emily Christine Fauver, who is originally from Oregon but now lives in Louisiana with husband Dylan. Emily works as an online fitness coach; Dylan, meanwhile, is an Air Force pilot. But for both of them, there was only one dream job – being a parent.
So, when Emily fell pregnant in late 2016, the news delighted the couple. Emily in particular couldn’t wait for the months ahead: she was going to cherish every milestone. And, for her, the first of these was her routine eight-week ultrasound scan.
