Hi Carol,
Welcome to the site. We have Anthony who is now 5 months with DS. We did not have a prenatal diagnosis and we have had very few complications so far. His hart is strong. I will look forward to hearing more about your family.

Hello Carol,
I have a 13 yr old girl a 7 yr old boy (as of yesterday), almost 10 mth old and a new baby on the way so your family is alot like our. I think the older ones are much harder. Paige(13 yr old) keeps you going all the time. All I hear is I need to go here and here and so on. Then Aaron my 7 yr old starts yelling thats not fair I dont get to do anything. Alexis is just so easy compared to them two. We didnt know she had DS and a heart condition either until she was born. Dont get me wrong Alexis can be something else at times also. She just dont have 15 diifferent things she has to do everyday(atleast not yet Wink )
I just wanted to say hello and give you a big WELCOME!!!!!
