Myself and my wife Beccy are the proud parents of Amy who is now 4 1/2 years old. Amy was born on 12 May 2002 in Portsmouth, England. Although over 4 years ago the memories of that day are still very vivid. We already had two sons Sam (Now 9), and Jack (now 7). We were both from very male dominated family's, myself being one of four boys, and Beccy's family having had nine boys in total including our two. Therefore we were very much expecting another boy, and when Beccy had to visit the hospital a few weeks before the birth the nurses all but confirmed this.

When you find out you're pregnant for the 3rd time I was shocked because a month before I just gave birth to my daughter I thought nothing else of it. I was gonna love my baby no matter what. My partner wanted me to have an abortion cause it was soon but he soon changed his mind when we went to have my 1st scan (14 weeks ).

Hello, my name is Judy, and in 1992, I gave birth to Katie, our lovely 8 year-old daughter.
I wasn't told about the fact that Katie had mds until the day before she was born. When Katie's father found out that she was mds, he decided he couldn't cope and left me to bring her up on her own. Fortunately, I have since re-married and Bill has adopted Katie.
