What to Expect When You’re Expecting a Baby with Down Syndrome
From the Diocese of Rockville Centre, Office of Faith Formation
If you or anyone you know is expecting a baby diagnosed with Down Syndrome, there is much you should know. Here you’ll find out the truth of what to expect from someone who knows first-hand. As a mother of three now adult children with Downs, Mary Anne Russo speaks from the heart about both the challenges and the many joys of raising her children, how they taught her about unconditional love, and that Downs isn’t a disability, but a challenge. She also offers the invaluable wisdom, guidance, and support that comes from years of experience. Please pass this along to your friends and family and anyone you know who may need to discover the truth about Down Syndrome.
