: : 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...

: This I'm alnost positive means that the child will be able to function better than other Downs syndrome. This child will probably be able to start school with the other kids and be accepted as well.I have seen it at work how excited they would get when he would come from his other camp and come to ours. He will probably be very affectionate and all you can do is give him all the love that he needs. Dont get discouraged he will probably be one of the most lovable children you will ever meet!

I don't want to be burst your balloon but there is no way to predict how affected the baby is at 3 days old. His physical features may not be very apparent now but he is way too young to tell much else. Hopefully, he will turn out to be all he can be!
