Great articles on Trisomy 21
Raising Joey has reprinted an article from Beverly Beckham at the Boston Globe on raising her daughter with Down syndrome and an interview with a parent of a T21 child in American Baby magazine. Both articles share a realistic picture of life raising our special children, yet are very upbeat in tone, helping to break old stereotypes of how difficult their lives are. The more we can get the message in the media, the better life will be for our kids, and the fewer mothers who will panic at the thought of raising a child with T21 and abort.
