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."
Before I had even gotten pregnant I had a feeling I might have a baby with a disability. It is a 6th sense I have. My feelings were rarely wrong. I stressed and worried. I got a blood test done, and the doctor told me I had like a one in 10,000 chance but assured me that false positives were fairly common.
This story is submitted by a neighbor of a family with a child, who has MDS. What an inspiration! Thank you Diana!!! :>)
I had a garage sale today, and a father and his three children came into the garage, one was a very small statured young boy. His height and personal looks gave him the look of a child of about 7 or 8. I said, hi to him as he was wearing western clothing and I asked if he was a cowboy. He responded with a yes he was. His younger brother and younger sister laughed and we got to talking.
