He has Down Syndrome?!

My midwife said, “you as a nurse should see some characteristics on him, do you see them?” My response was hesitant and I just said, “well all newborns look the same when they are born, I can’t really tell.” But I knew the minute I held him in my arms that my son had Trisomy 21. I’m sharing my stories because just like any other mom that finds out their child has Down Syndrome, I was in shock. It is not easy and it actually takes a lot of courage to understand and assimilate that our daily lives will be very different than what we imagined.
