  1. When doctors first gave Stacey DaSIlva the news, her world stood still. Though she was just 13 years old at time, she still remembers how the crisp, white walls of the doctor’s office she was sitting in seemed to go black. As they read off her diagnosis, her dreams for the future felt dashed.

    She had Alpha-one Antitrypsin Deficiency, the doctors told her. And while she could still go on to live a “normal” life in many other ways, there was one thing the liver and lung disease would forever take away: her ability to carry children of her own.

    For a young girl who dreamed of one day becoming a wife and mother, the diagnosis was like a knife to the heart. But fast-forward 15 years (and many medical advancements later) and her and her best friend/Husband, Kevin DaSilva hopes to hear and see (kevin is Deaf) the pitter-patter of little feet soon.
