I received our test results today saying that our baby has a 1 in 3 chance in having down syndrome. In researching online I found you here & I also visited your blog. You have a beautiful baby boy & watching his videos & looking at his pictures only further cemented my opinion about the possibility of having a child with down syndrome. My dr & a few close family members mentioned terminating the pregnancy & I couldn't imagine doing so. Thank you for your information & all of your research & for allowing me to have a peek at your life with your absolutely perfect baby boy!!

Hello! My husband and I are working with a surrogate, and we are 18 weeks pregnant with twins. We are so excited about our babies! We did the preliminary screens, but decided not to do an amnio. Initial indicators were not strong that we had any issues, and we feel like we would not do anything to terminate the pregnancy regardless. I would consider an amnio to prepare, but I am concerned about the risk, especially with twins and given all we have gone through to get pregnant to begin with.
In any case, I have been doing lots of reading, and ran across your posts and your web site. You are an inspiration to me. I pray that if we have a child with any type of disability, learning disorder...whatever...that we are as patient, loving and kind as you are with Hunter. I watched your video of him learing to sit up and I almost cried. I was just so touched by your love for your son, and how sweet his little face is.
I know you don't know me...but I wanted you to know that you are truly an example of a great mom, and I thank God that there are people like you raising wonderful kids in this world. Thank you for being you..and sharing your family with the world.
My best to you in getting pregnant again, and in all you do.
