Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
It is a difficult situation to decide as her triple test is normal with increased nuchal fold thickness. Rest all is normal. As she already has a handicapped baby chances of having another such baby are also high. If you want to continue the pregnancy then keep your fingers crossed.
