Any One have a child with Down syndrom?

I gave birth to a little boy with Down Syndrom and major heart and eating disorders . I am a single mom and I did not know about any of his issues . I am 25 years old and this was just a surprise. Has any one ever been through this or have any tips for dealing with every thing. DOnt get me wrong I love my son with all my heart he is my joy and my life. I just want to help him and my self.

  • you're doing a great job! have you looked into occupational or physical therapy? They can be great in helping with what you need. also, some towns have respite centers to give yourself a break for moms with kids with special needs. if ou wanna chat at all, feel free to PM anytime. I'm hear to listen and help where i can.
