Re: Telling family child has downs

Hi Betty,
You sound heartbroken and to be honest with you, I think your husband's idea is the best one. Your parents and sister can't look beyond her individual situation, but they also choose to dwell on it, when they have a beautiful grandson/nephew they could be doting on.
Maybe moving away at least temporarily would be the best option, as time heals everything, and maybe by then, your parents will realize what they're missing.
