Down Syndrome Stories


You are not alone in carrying your child with Down Syndrome to term. This is what Laura’s mom has to say to parents who have been given the adverse prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome:

“A year ago when she was born with Down syndrome (Trisomy 21), her daddy and I didn’t know what to expect. Since then, we have read and learned a lot about Down syndrome. We will put no limitations on Laura… instead, we will encourage her to live to her potential, fulfilling the purpose God has for her life. To us, she is a treasure – and we are so thankful she is a part of our family… so much so, that my 16 yr. old daughter now wants to adopt a baby with Down syndrome one day. There is an adoption waiting list for these special babies, and now I understand why.”
