I’m writing because…

I’m writing for me- Telling my story as a therapeutic outlet.  As a memoir.  As reflection. As a way to work through my feelings.  I’m writing for my family and friends- to keep them updated about health issues and baby’s well being.  I’m writing for others.  Getting a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome and opting to continue the pregnancy is not the norm. Most people especially with invasive testing, like a CVS or amnio, choose to terminate based on a diagnosis of Down Syndrome.  I am writing to join the small community of us who take that diagnosis and embrace it, to contribute my story so others can feel connected, like I feel connected hearing about how others cope and adjust.
