I just wanted to thank all of you for your kind words and support. Its amazing that people who dont even really know you can be so kind and empathic. I feel more together today. Sometime my fears about Down Syndrome has more to do with my worry about how the world would treat my child. That scares me more than anything. I already love this baby inside of me and I cant stand the feelings I have had this weekend. I have started feeling detached from the pregnancy and baby. I so dont want that. I am trying to hold on and take one step at a time but I have a tendeny to go from 0 to 60 in a split second when it comes to my worries. Thanks again and I will keep you posted.
|Down's children really are special.|
I was the person who wrote "Down's children really are special"-please accept my apology. It was not intended to be offensive-but to say that people who have Down's Syndrome are people who are gifts to us. Please be patient with my own ignorance, and understand, that while I am working on myself, I sometimes do need to be educated, or told if I mistakenly say something that is offensive.
