Exclamation

Tifferbelle puts it very well. I think if I had known I was carrying a Down's child back when an abortion was an option, I might have taken the easy route out. Everyone wants to have a perfect normal child. But....after 13 years of raising my daughter Amy, would I have an abortion if I had a chance to go back and do her conception and birth over again? No. I love her DEARLY!! Having been there and done that I have to say that having a Down Syndrome child isn't as bad as the FEAR of having one. And having a normal healthy child is not a guarantee against heartache and problems raising them. It just goes with the territory. Every child is an individual. God love them all.
