hi. as of just recently my wife and I had a 19 week ultra sound. we were hoping to find out the gender so we could be a bit more ready for when the baby comes. later the day of we get a call from our midwife explaining that she doesn't deliver babies with problems. so of course we start to worry right away. she sends us to a specialist at a women's hospital a hard few days later.
Right when my daughter was born i knew she was special. i just didn't know how special. as she grew so did her knowledge.even though she has mosaic down syndrome she didn't let that stop her. her lifelong dream is to become a best selling horror author. i can believe she can do it as long as she tries her best and sets her mind to it.
Mi hija tiene un porcentaje de 14% de MDS; sin rasgos faciales down. A nivel académico no tiene problemas, aunque su actitud sí es más infantil de lo que corresponde a su edad (1 año menos en su edad mental).

Our beautiful son, Aidan blessed us with his presence May 14th 2010. After a complicated natural delivery he was rushed to the NICU because he had fluid in his lungs. My husband Brandon went with him. I didn't get to see him for two hours! I was wheeled into his room. He had a big oxygen dome over his head. At that time all I cared about was him recovering and coming home, but the Pediatrician felt it was the right time to say, "Your baby has some characteristics of Down Syndrome. We would like to take blood for genetic testing."
