Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you recently had a child that was diagnosed with Down syndrome, or like myself, had an amniocentesis come back with positive results for a baby with Down syndrome -- BUY THIS BOOK.

There's a lot of information on the internet, but this book not only compiles it together for you in an organized fashion (so you actually retain what you read...) but it also provides humanity. Short snippets at the end of every chapter help you cope with the array of emotions that you will be feeling -- without making you feel bad, dirty or even worse.

The information in this book is amazing. The information itself actually cheered me up and made me realize, "Hey, it's actually NOT that big of a deal." I'm truly indebted to the authors and contributors of this book.

You can find as much information as possible for children and teenagers with Down syndrome -- if you have a child passed the age of 9. This book provides you with information for NEWBORNS, INFANTS, TODDLERS and YOUNG CHILDREN. Again, invaluable.

If you're a family member (grandparent-to-be, or new grandparent) BUY this for yourself as well. There's a lot of teamwork involved in raising a child with Down syndrome, and whilst you may not be the main source of the team... your ability to cooperate with mom and dad's new way of raising this child will help tremendously. There's also a lot of legal issues in regards to the child's future that all grandparents need to know!
