I was in the same place you were last year. I was devestated by the news that my unborn child had down syndrome. I cried for at least two months. I'm now typing this to you with a 6 mo old pulling at the keyboard. She is beautiful and has brought us joy. I still h ave an occasional sad moment, but mostly we are just happy. Know that it will get better. I couldn't love her any more if she was a "normal" baby. I met with some ladies from my local down syndrome association whe I was pregnant and it helped. Take care, Libby
