Greyson Elliot Corbitt

    I'm not sure how to say all this, so I'm just going to blurt it all out.  A couple weeks ago, an ultrasound revealed that Greyson had a cyst on his brain. We were told that this is a marker for Down syndrome, but not to worry because its not common but it's not uncommon.  Today, I had a follow up ultrasound to see if it had resolved itself. The cyst is resolved, but we noticed that his feet were turned in.   Club feet is also a sign of Down syndrome.  My doctor came in to look at the ultrasound, and confirmed that it did look like club feet, so he requested that everything else be measured and looked at again.  His head measured a little small (6%), but we are not sure if that is a sign for Down syndrome or not.  Also, the tech was unable to visualize his nasal bone- another sign for Down syndrome.  She went back and viewed the pictures from the anatomy scan where she is still pretty sure she saw a nasal bone.  I requested they do the Harmony test (a test where they can take blood from my arm and view Greyson's DNA and therefore, tell exactly if he has Trisonomy 21), and my doctor referred me to a specialist.  I go meet with the specialist on the 24th and should get results from the Harmony test in about 2 weeks.  

    We would appreciate everyone's prayers for our family.  We know that God has planned this for Greyson from the beginning, whether he has Down syndrome or just club feet or nothing.  

"For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother's womb.
I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
My frame was not hidden from you,
when I was being made in secret,
intricately woven in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed substance;
in your book were written, every one of them,
the days that were formed for me,
when as yet there was none of them."
-Psalm 139:13-16


  1. I know I have never met you in person, but I feel like you are a dear friend just from sharing struggles with you online. Big big hugs and lots of love to you. You are so strong and God will give you strength where you are lacking. I will be praying for you and for your little man. No matter the outcome, you've got this! Praise God for His wonderful strength and for your willingness to trust in Him.

  2. The greatest , kindest souls live within the halls of tortured bodies.
    Our prayers continue for your family.
    ALL children are fearfully and wonderfully made. WE are his handiwork! And God doesn't make any junk!
