Following several tests, Zack and Whitney learned that their infant had Edwards’ syndrome.
Only about 13 in 100 babies born alive with Edwards’ syndrome survive past their first birthday, making it extremely unlikely that they will survive after birth.
Whitney was forced to make the most difficult parenting choice after receiving this diagnosis: whether or not to end the pregnancy.
In the end, she made the decision to carry out the termination, and Peach was born a few days later.
Zack will try to persuade Whitney to hold a memorial for baby Peach in upcoming episodes, but Whitney is evasive.
When the time comes, Whitney finds an excuse not to go, leaving Zack to go alone. The pair had agreed to go together to pick up her ashes.
He sits with his daughter’s ashes when he gets home as his feelings overwhelm him.
Later, he runs into a distraught Whitney and confronts her for leaving him at such a sensitive time.
Will Zack and Whitney stick to their promise to help one another through it, or will their relationship deteriorate?
