Whether your baby is in utero or in your arms, a Down syndrome diagnosis can turn your world upside down.

We’ve been there. We know the grief and the anger and the fear. We know, too, that it doesn’t matter what we know. When you’re starting down a path that you never wanted to take, you don’t care that others are traveling with you, or that others have traveled it before. You simply don’t want to be on it.

But we hope you find some solace in this: every feeling is valid. There is no judgment, no shame. And while you may not be in a good place, you are in the right place, right now.
