I love hearing these stories =) My husbands brother has Downs and he is going to be 36 in July!! He is such a pleasure to be around!! I love working with Downs children, they will make your day so much brighter!! The drs also told my mother in law that he would not live past the age of one, never walk and so on... I think it is amazing that parents do not give up on their children no matter what the drs say!! they are so much fun, enjoy your beautiful girl and keep her involved!! God bless

Some of the doctors make me so mad with their dooms day talk. All teaching hospitals should have parents like you come in to tell them what can happen and how to talk to parents with special needs babies. I am the mother that heard some of the dooms day words and say to the doctors that they should tell the parents to be prepared (as if we could really be) for the worse but pray and work for the best and be extreamly thankful for some where in the meddle. we praise our child often (now 17 years old) and encurage him to do as much as possible what his christian pers do (to a point) He is in special ed and is the only one in his class to keep a 4.0 average all year. Sure he can not read as well as a 17 year old should, or count but he has a heart with more love and care to others than most people I know.

That is so great to hear!! I have been blessed with 18 month old mono/di twins. But I do work with individuals with developmental and physical disabilities. I have experience working with people with downs syndrome, tbi, autism and cerebral palsy. I love what I do and bless every parent that has been strong enough to be able to handle such a challenge! You are a wonderful parent and deserve much gratitude. I have come across families who have not accepted their children for who they are and who they have come to be. It is so sad to see there are parents that have abandoned their children because of their disability. Much praise to you for being a great mom!!

Congrats! These kids are amazing wells of strength and determination. My princess is only 5 and 1/2 months old and already determined to do the opposite of anything anyone says to "expect". She's been proving them wrong since the day that she was born!
