Welcome to this site. I hope you find some of the words and pictures within it useful.
I am not an expert and nor do I claim to know how you are feeling or what you might be going through. But I bet we have been through similar.
In this site I aim to share my experiences as a mum. A mum to three children. One of whom has Down’s syndrome. One who changed my life immeasurably. For the better. Something I could never have imagined in those precious newborn days.
My biggest piece of advice if you are a new parent faced with a Diagnosis of Down’s is don’t get bogged down by the text books and the leaflets. Don’t see your baby as “Down’s syndrome”. See them as a baby. A person. Your child. That will grow up to be a reflection of you and their upbringing. Whose experiences and nurturing will shape them.
They will be more like you and their families than like any other person with Down’s syndrome.
