Sharing a Prenatal or Newborn Diagnosis
Pregnant women who have received a prenatal diagnosis of Trisomy 21 and mothers of newborns who have Down syndrome may wait to share that news with family and friends until they find resources to share that provide up to date and accurate information about their child's potential and opportunities.

Nursery Rhymes and Political Correctness
Parents of chidren who reflect the diversity of our communities are working to raise awareness of cultural and personal sensitivities that their families experience. Sometimes this advocacy effort is condemned as unnecessary or ridiculous 'political correctness' by those who feel threatened by it

Advocating for Inclusion - Unexpected Benefits
While many parents advocate for inclusive classrooms and community programs in hopes of giving their children the opportunity to make friends and grow up with opportunities to participate in social activities throughout their lives, the unexpected benefits of inclusion are just as valuable.

Finding A New Label for Down Syndrome
People with Down syndrome elevate the quality of life and richness of experience we enjoy in our homes, schools and communities. Families of babies and young children are especially struck by the inappropriate connotations the word 'down' has in describing babies, children or adults with DS.

Memorable Sundays - Childhood Congregations
Memories of positive interactions and inclusiveness within a family's faith community may be overwhelmed by a few unexpected negative comments or reactions, especially if we forget to share stories of the warmth and support offered by so many individuals.

Future Sibling Support and Down Syndrome
Sibling support programs help build better family relationships as well as providing willing listeners and a forum to speak for brothers and sisters of children with Down syndrome and other disabilities. As important to our children as they may be, so are our expectations of our children as adults

Inspirational Mothers - Down Syndrome Advocacy
We can be thankful to one another for the inspiration to be the mothers our children deserve and the advocates that society demands, keeping one another reaching forward for our children and reaching back to other moms and families.

Raising Awareness About Disabilities
Many parents of newly diagnosed children who decide to raise awareness and encourage opportunities for their child and others who share the same diagnosis find that many friends, coworkers, neighbors and others already have personal experience and knowledge of childhood disabilities.

Welcome to Holland - Today and Yesterday
The wonderful essay written by Emily Perl Kingsley has been included in many wonderful anthologies and is often included in New Parent Packets for parents and professionals sharing a newborn or prenatal diagnosis of Down syndrome. Many believe that it is as relevant today as the day it was written.

Peanut and Food Allergies or Sensitivities
Children and teens with peanut allergies or other food sensitivities face great challenges at school, visiting friends and family, and even in their own homes.
