: : PLease help - my sister, who is 41 years old and just had her fourth boy, has just been told that her baby has a "mild case" of DS. Is there such a thing as a mild case? What does this entail? What is the best-case scenario for a life for a child such as this? Most importantly, how can I best help her and be a support to her, besides prayers and wishing I could just make it all go away...

It was wrong for them to tell them he has a mild case.It is a fact that you cannot tell how severe it will be until they grow and mature.If he is mosaic then that is different than trisomy 21.I have a little girl with downs and they made sure (doctors) that they never said she had mild or severe downs.You cannot tell.They all grow differently.They were honestly probably saying that so they felt better or else the parents said it so people didn't look down to the child.I know I have been there.I told people she had mild downs and they always bring it up"she has only mild downs right?"people are so dumb.They think it changes who the child is but who needs to change are the people.
