We are considering adopting a baby with Downs Syndrome. The medical stuff doesn't scare me. The baby, toddler, young child stuff doesn't scare me. The older child, teen, young adult stuff scares me. I know there is no way to know what will happen in those years and it's very individual, but it's my only hesitation with considering this particular case.
My younger brother has Spina Bifida and still lives with my parents at the age of 26. It's been very hard on my parents the last few years because they are not on the same page as far as how best to parent an adult who in some ways mentally is still a 10 year old.
I'm not sure I can knowingly put myself in that place. I need to hear the good, bad, and the ugly. Any blogs, resources, websites, etc. would be appreciated. I've been googling, but the amount of info out there is a bit overwhelming!
