I am mother of four children. The youngest is Arianne and she has MDS. She was born on March 14,1998. She was 3 weeks early. I was 38 when she was born. A few hours after she was born, I saw for myself that she had DS. The pediatrician came and told us that she thought Arianne had DS, but she wasn't sure because our baby had just a few signs of Down Syndrome.
