We are very pleased to have found this useful site! Thank you to Tigger for passing it on to me.
My name is Melanie, I live in NSW Australia with my partner Troy. I am a very proud mother of 2 - Jakson (03/12/02) and Ruby (06/11/05).
I guess you could say the past 6 months has been a rollercoaster ride... Ruby has certainly been a surprise package! We were shocked and saddened to learn Ruby had DS at birth and even more shocked to learn she had a heart defect. But 6 months on we can only say we count our blessings everyday and look forward to tomorrow with our little gem.
We look forward to sharing our wonderful gift with you all.

Little Ruby is a cutie, our wee Abbey also gave us a rollercoaster ride in the beginning, but now that she is 2 its like living with a little comedian, she is soo much fun and a real joy, her brother and sister adore her... We are from Perth W.A...

Hi and welcome. Ruby is beautiful!!

I'm also from NSW- mid-North coast. It's great to have another Aussie on here. Maybe we could all have our own downsyn get together some time!!! I know you are going to love it here.

[biggest][blue]Hooray - You found us!!![/blue][/biggest]

Love the pic and so glad to see you here. How is Ruby going? Talitha has been so much better since the surgery, more active, better colour, lots of smiles. It was such a horrendous time at the Sydney children's but so worth it to see them healthier.

Some time us Aussies are all going to have to get together. If you see Donna remind her about this place too.
Looking forward to seeing you here a lot.

THIS IS FANTASTIC another Auzzie. Congrats and welcome aboard. We live in South Australia in a little town called Waikerie (about 180km from Adelaide). Little Ruby is a darling and I have always LOVED that name.....Hope to hear more about your family soon.

welcome to downsyn

I know what you mean about the heart defect, I remember my husband saying that to him the heart defect was more serious than the DS

thankfully Hannah had sucessful surgery and she is a little star now

look forward to seeing more pics of your precious little girl and getting to know you better
