Dedicated to parents of children with Downs Syndrome
When a baby is born and appears quite 'normal', we parents are not given a detailed catalogue of information about the risks of what might go wrong in the future. We are not told about the chances that a heart condition, hearing problem, visual defect and so on might appear. We are not given lists of statistics about the risk of delinquency, drug abuse or success at school; we go home and dream our dreams for a happy future. If we were given such a list, we would need to learn to live with the information and control our imaginings of what might happen.
But if you have a baby born with a condition like Down syndrome, which is recognizable from birth or shortly after, then many facts and figures are available. Much of this information is about possible medical and developmental problems and about how they can be helped but the majority of children with Down syndrome do not have many of these problems.
My daughter has Down Syndrome and I have spent many a night crying myself to sleep wondering what the future holds, but I can quite categorically state, I wouldn't change her, Katy is a joy to have and I and all my family are proud to have her.
