hello and welcome to up for downs, I am Daniella, Adam (daddy2josh) is my husband and joshua is our special little man.
we set this site up primarily to help others in the same position as us, if you type down syndrome into a search engine - you get a lot of medical jargon which is quite often hard to digest. here, it is all about parents experiences and it is a place where we can all unwind and share our highs and lows.
it all started when i was on another site which has a special needs forum, it is generally for special needs and more often than not we had to search through pages of threads just to find what we were lookin for. and i then realised what was missing and within a week, up for downs was born!
what a great site, i am Daniella's mother also Adam's mother in law and Joshua's grandmother. I am so very proud of all three of them and with everyone who is involved with this site in raising awareness of down's.
