Re: new here
I have a 6 month old little boy w/ DS. You learn to move on. I have days I cry all the time and some days just the way my son looks at me makes everything seem ok. I have four kids 7 and younger so I know what he should be doing and what he isn't doing which makes it a little harder and the delay more obvoius. My sister had a baby who was the " norm " about 11 weeks after I did. Justin was born with a TEF which required surgery so we were apart for about a month I guess I am just grateful to have him with me. As far as you , you will have ups and downs but you will be alright. Read the book called Gift it is how children born with Down Syndrome have enriched their parent's life. Have you heard of the poem Welcome to Holland? Another thing they have some absoulutely gorgeous babies with Down Syndrome . Don't let anyone bring you down. I have a very close relationship with my OT, PT and Social Worker, ask them for a local support group. One more thing, you will never get over this , you will learn how to move forward . My son is so amazing he has taught me so much about the value of life and I am very proud to take this incredible journey with him. I just had to share my thoughts with you.
