There is a man at work who is my same age and just found out that there unborn baby has DS. We are social talk and this and that but he is above me in rank and I dont know his wife at all...I told him that my daughter has DS and that if he wanted I could arrange a meet, if you will, so that they could understand what this meant...I had hear tale that they might abort...I told him that I didnt want to sway the situation one way or the other but I did think that he might want to know just how undepressing it could be...of course his mind is being filled with negatives at the doctors office...they have a short life expectancy will most likely be MR and need surgeries and life long care....all the stuff they told me when I had my daughter...I just want to show him that its not always that way...Emma has had no surgeries...was in the NICU for 4 days at birth...shes delayed from her peers but only by 4 months...shes still tiny but that just makes her easier to carry...she graduated from PT this year and is walking like a champ..we still have challanges and therapies 4 times a week but shes a go getter and absolutly HILLARIOUS, everyone loves her and those that dont dont see her, so I guess that I am wondering if I should just but out...I dont see him much and therefore we dont speak often and I really dont want them to feel like someone would hate them for making there own decision...I really just want them to know that its not bad just different...I do understand that some DS babies are born with such massive medical problems that they couldnt survive any way, but so far there baby is just perfect...am I out of line here? Is Emma too rare a case to use as an example? I hear loads of wonderful things on this site and feel as though all the crap they give you at the DOC office is horrible and not very accurate at least not from what Ive personally seen.... any input?
