Accepted genetically

During a meeting on Wednesday, one collaborator of mine happily reported that she was expecting a baby. After we all congratulated her and discussed that it was a good time to have a baby (year of dog, good luck, etc). She also mentioned she had been going through all kinds of genetic testing and was waiting for a whole-genome microarray results, for deletions and insertions stuff. We were joking about how this baby has been on the frontiers of research in her (it's a girl) mom's field, even before her birth. My collaborator joked that she would tell her baby years later that "you went through all kinds of tests before you were finally accepted!".
