    I understand that you must feel awful at the moment. But you will come to terms with it, your baby will be all the more special because of it. It isnt the 'problem' that it seems; many people with Downs go on to live fulfilling lives. Children may attend mainstream schools, adults go out to work. Oh, and people with Downs are very loving. I am sure Dizzy and Mizzy will be along soon to elaborate; her brother has Downs.

    (((Hugs))) and my thoughts are with you.

    Honey - you must be in such shock but believe me, its not the end of the world to find out you have a child with Downs. I know there is still a stigma out there with regards to Down Syndrome but its not as bad at 10-20 years ago...

    I know it's not the same situation but....a good friend of mine found out at 36 weeks that her baby had hydrocephalus and they were basically told by the specialist to expect the worst - that looking at the level of water in the skull, there was little hope the baby would survive. Her little girl was born by c-section at 38 weeks screaming and thrashing about against all odds and they brouhgt her home after a week in the high dependency ward...she had her op at 3 weeks to help drain the fluid from her brain...she's perfect and is the most wonderful singer :D and the only thing wrong with her right now(she's 11 months) is she needs intensive physio to boost her muscle tone...

    I am sending plenty of hugs and love your way....

    I'm sorry to hear your news: you'll need time to come to terms with this.

    I'd like to reiterate what Bex has said though - long gone is the time when kids with Downs had a bleak future ... plus, like every baby, they bring their love with them. Your baby is extra special.

    My thoughts are with you and yours xx

    Lots of hugs and love to you. I know that we all want our children to be 'normal' but I can assure you that given time and the help that you need to understand how this syndrome will affect your child and you I know that you will have the most wonderful relationship with your baby. This may be of little comfort to you at this time but I honestly believe that these very special children are given to very special mothers.
    Best wishes to you and your little one.
    Ceri.
