Down Syndrome: A Year of Grief and Joy


[LEFT]In one week from today it will be one year since I decided to become the mother of a child with Down syndrome.
It was March 21, 2013 –- World Down Syndrome Awareness Day. But I didn’t know that. All I knew was I was 15 weeks pregnant, lying on a table, having an ultrasound and waiting for the tech to tell me what else was “wrong” with my baby.[/LEFT]


This is a lovely story.


God bless you…the reality of true love. :heart:


This is my daughter Heather she has downs syndrome…


What a beautiful girl, and a gorgeous smile.

God bless her!
