DH and I agreed that we are not ready to take on this burden, and we are not prepared to make it the world's (society) or another family's (adoption) burden.

Why am I sharing you ask?
Because I feel STRONGLY about this decision, and I don't care what ANY of you think.

*WAIT*! There's MORE!
We WILL be trying to have another healthy child, and God forbid something is wrong with that one - WE WILL KEEP TRYING. A child is one thing, a severely mentally handicapped child is another.

Put that in your juice box and suck it, ladies!!!!!!!!

*****************

I'm done replying to you all because you're all asking the SAME FUCKING THINGS. I'm going to quote an anon who summed EVERYTHING up in a few sentences.

"I don't think you came across as "bragging." It seemed more like you were angry. It seems like you've heard some negativity about your choice, and you're angry because you really feel it's the right choice. I'm so sorry OP. Not because of the choice you had to make, but because you were put in the position to make that choice to begin with. You must have been devastated when you heard your baby had Down Syndrome. I wish you luck with a healthy baby in the future, and I hope you have some support for what you're going through."

(^^^^ THANK YOU anon who wrote that, seriously THANK YOU! ^^^^^^)

Have a nice life people.

Hopefully it'll make you sterile if that's how you feel.

If a child is a burden, you shouldn't have any.

If you are not ready to take on " this burden" you should stop trying all together.

I do not agree with you and I would not change a thing having a special needs son(now 18YO) His  SN was a total surprise and things got worse over the  first three years of his life

Why not give the baby up for adoption?  There are many families that would love to have your burden.

I'd do the same. I'm sorry for what you're going through.
