Nyah - Australia
This is our daughter Nyah, she is 5 months old and was born with CMV. I had no idea I contracted the virus when I was pregnant.
She was also born with neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia (low platelet count) and through testing for that the doctors found out she had CMV.
It was the most frightening time of our lives, her viral load was in the millions but for now she is happy and healthy. We have to monitor her hearing, of course, but we so far have been very lucky with her health.
