3 for the 21st Blog Hop: A truth, a tip, a pic

Today I’m participating in 3 for the 21st blog hop on With a Little Moxie.

1. One truth about Down syndrome: Having a baby with Down syndrome changes your life. Having a baby changes your life. Life is about change, how we respond to it, and the lessons we learn.

2. One tip: When you get a diagnosis resist the urge to go gung-ho into the world of Down syndrome. Spend the first 6-12 months nurturing your relationship with your spouse or significant other, if you have one, and your child. There will be plenty of time to raise money, awareness, advocate, etc. but the first year is about…firsts. Enjoy each smile, eyelash, and snuggle as you get to know who your little one is – your little baby with a personality all their own.

  1. Love your tip!! I feel like I’ve gone gung-ho a bit and need to step back at times…My little Pip is only 8 months & while we share our journey with her, Down syndrome & my other son, we’ve kinda stepped back on anything else to just enjoy her at this stage…
