I know that must sound horrible..like I am some crappy parent who doesnt want a disabled child and it's not like that. I am a 20 year old single mother with a 2 year old already..I have little help and little capablility to provide and care for a child with a disability. I am 32 weeks pregnant and am waiting for the results to give me a definite yes or no. But I am considering giving the child away if it does. I love my baby enough to want him/her to have the best life possible and I know I am not capable of providing for a disabled child. What would you do? Idk..I am so confused and lost..and scared..mostly scared..I keep blaming myself..and people are blaming the babies father..it's just weird beacuse he already had one baby with down sydrome (a different mother) who passed away from other complications at 4 yrs old..and now this baby 6-7 yrs later might have down sydrome too. I know its no ones fault its genetic..idk nemore

I have a disabled child. If someone had told me this when I was pregnant, I would have said "I can't do this, I can't raise a disabled child!" I understand your fear, but he has truly turned out to be such a blessing. Sometimes life is overwhelming, but I love my son so much for who he is, what he taught me and what he has taught others. Here is a link to a poem that I hope will help.
