CONGRATULATIONS upon the birth of your child! Because your child was born with Trisomy 21, it is our desire to help you gain information and support for the journey that lies ahead.

The birth of a new baby is, and should be, a time for celebration and the feeling of joy. Your baby may not be exactly as you have dreamed, but please let us assure you that your baby is more like other babies than unlike. In fact, your baby is a baby first and foremost, and this unexpected diagnosis is just a part of who your child is. Just like all babies, your baby needs you for your guidance, your safe-keeping and, most importantly, your nurturing love.

We realize that with the birth of your child with Down syndrome, you may have entered into a whole new world – one that can be confusing and filled with conflicting emotions at first. It is our hope that through information and support, you will be able to gain an understanding of your feelings, of your baby’s unique needs, and of the love your baby has to offer.
