Down syndrome-A life worth living!

Postby Miracle » Thu Mar 20, 2008 1:24 pm

I did a montage for our daughter Kara (who was diagnosed with Down Syndrome shortly after birth) in an effort to raise awareness as it is "World Down Syndrome Day 03/21".

I hope this video montage will touch the hearts and souls of those who view it as much as Kara has touched ours..............

Updated

I am pleased too share that the following video montage I did for my daughter Kara has been added to our local Down syndrome association's website (in Jacksonville, Florida) for expecting parents!!!

Hi,
Its only been about 4 hours since we saw abnormalities on our 19wk scan. We go for an ammnio tomorrow to find out if our baby has downs. I just wanted to say thank you for posting your beautiful video. I had been seriously considering a termination but your post and others on this forum have changed my mind.

I dont think I could go through with the termination. I think I will show this to my husband. I think it will help him cope with this as well.

that is super news about your montage! i remember i was so happy when our down syndrome support group asked for a picture of pj for their brochure that they hand out at the hospitals. they wanted to interview us for a video to hand out to, but we were just too busy to get to it!

careyb3- i hope all is well with you and your family. :D
