My name is Kathy and I have had Lupus for about 45 years. I did not know it at the time that I had my two children that are now adults, but I did suspect it. Fortunately my children were ok and they did not inherrit the Lupus. I have a son and a daughter. My daughter and her husband had a baby 4 months ago. They have a beautiful little boy. I was worried to be sure. She was worried too, but thank heavens it all worked out great and her baby is very healthy with no signs of Lupus as of yet anyway. She is 23 and does not have any signs of Lupus. I hope that she never gets diagnosed with it. You have to have faith and all you can do is pray for the best. I hope with all my heart that she and her baby are ok and that the Lupus does not come out in the baby. I will keep her and your family in my prayers.
