Introducing the Huy Family
Reply with quote

Hello everyone! Our son Cooper was born on July 1st. We have 2 other children. We live in Nashville TN. Are there any other families from around here? Very excited about meeting other families that are going through the same emotions as we are. By the way, how do I add a photo?

Lauren, welcome to the most wonderful family on the net!!!! You will find that all the people here are so incredibly loving. Can't wait to see pictures of little Cooper and the rest of the family.

As far as posting a picture.... you need a link to post it. I put my pictures in Photobucket and then copy and paste. If you don't figure it out, just let us know. Someone will help you even more.

Welcome Lauren!
And congratulations on the birth of Cooper! We live in Clarksville, about an hour from Nashville, but we go to Vandy quite often. Have you hooked up with the Down syndrome association of Middle Tennessee yet? They are a wonderful resource! We also have a few other families here in the Nashville area! Feel free to email me any time CAmommy2KJ@aol.com. I can't wait to get to know you guys better!

Welcome to the board and congratulations on the birth of your little angel!! Your kids are ADORABLE! I'm sure you are already aware that you will find Downsyn to be an invaluable resource. There is always someone here to answer pretty any question that is out there and that is so comforting! In addition to offering a whole lot of support, that is! Can't wait to hear more about your family!

PS...I LOVE that name, Cooper! Hmm...might have to add that to my boy name list!! Smile

Congratulations on Cooper's birth. Your kids are gorgeous. I am so glad you found downsyn because we are all family here no matter how long you have been around. Feel free to ask questions.

The DS diagnosis is almost always devastating at first but as you will come to know, our kids are really an enormous blessing. All of us struggle with various issues at various times and you have our support when you go through those times as well as in the good times.

I look forward to hearing more about your family.

Thank you so much to everyone! It is very encouraging to see what a great family everyone on here is. We had a really hard first few weeks, emotionally, but as life starts to get back to normal we seem to be doing better. I look forward to meeting those of you who are close, and everyone on here. We visited the clinic at Vanderbilt last week, it was a bit over whelming, but very good. Thanks to everyone for making us feel so welcome. Very Happy I still can't quite figure out the picture thing. I guess I'm not the greatest with the computer.

Hi Lauren, I love the picture of your kids. Cooper is very cute! How old are your other children? Our son, Owen, was born just a couple days before Cooper. It sounds like you are doing well. It has been a bit tough for us, but mostly now we just see a baby, who we love. When I think about ds, it still stings a bit. We look forward to getting to know your family.

Our daughter,Sellars, is 8 and our other son, Maddox, is 2. I am the same way, all I see right now is a baby, no different from the other two. I knew nothing about DS before this. So I have had soooo many questions. I also look forward to getting to know you, and having someone else with a baby the same age as Cooper. Thanks
