Just found your web site through pick me up. My daughter gave birth last year aged 17. Blood tests didnt pick up anything out of the ordinary. Keeley was born 3 wks early 4lb 11oz, a day later we found out she had downs. She had a bowel op at 3 days old at birmingham childrens hospital(fantastic place). Came home when she was 5 wks old, then returned to birmingham at 5 months for a heart op as she had a AVSD. She has come on leaps and bounds since then and is always smiing and kissing! It has certainly made us realise whatever life throws at you, its for a reason. Its great to have found somewhere you can share your "ups and downs" as they say.
Hi everyone ive just read your story in pick me up and thought id come look at the site. I was 19 when i had my little girl Georgia whos downs shes 2 now and gettin very very cheeky!!!
