Expecting Parent Letter of Introduction


You are likely reading this section of our website, because you or a loved one have been informed that the baby you are carrying has, or may have, Down syndrome (also known as Trisomy 21).

Any parent who has been through this experience knows firsthand how confusing and difficult this time can be. Parents may feel that not only has their dream been shattered, they are also suddenly thrown into the position of considering some very difficult and heart-wrenching decisions.

The best approach to making any difficult decision is to gather as much information as possible. It is also crucial to reach out for support and guidance from others who have walked the same path that you find yourself on now.

The information provided in this section of our website will provide you with up-to-date facts about Down syndrome, including a parents’ perspective of what is involved in having a baby with Down syndrome. Once you have familiarized yourself with these facts, perhaps you would like to speak with another parent who, just like you, received a prenatal diagnosis and is willing to share with you some of the feelings involved in making the decision to lovingly welcome that child into their family.

It is crucial to realize that you are not alone. Local support is available through the Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center. If you would like to be put in contact with another parent, or if you have any other questions, please contact us.
