Im new to all this so first of all hello to everyone : )
I am a mum of 2 boys, my 4 month old was diagnosed as having down syndrome just before i gave birth to him.
Both my lads bring me so much joy, it makes no difference whatsoever and whatever comes our way we will deal with it but it is nice to be able to chat to other families in the same position as in the area where i live i have to travel to a down syndrome support group.
Hope to speak to some of you soon xxx
