Hi. My name is Tonya and I have 3 1/2 yr old twins, one has Down's Syndrome. I've never actually talked to someone in the same situation and i totally understand what your saying because it is way different than just having twins. I wouldn't change my baby for the world either, he is the sweetest thing He ever made;) But it would be really great to talk to someone else who has went thru some of the same things as me. It's a little different because while you are celebrating all of your sons' triumphs, you are always made keenly aware of just how far behind he really is, you have an example of exactly where he would be had he not had Down's. Emotionally I think it makes it just a little bit harder to come to terms with it. Well, I could go on forever and this is really just my introduction, but i hope to talk to everyone and maybe I can help a couple people out with my experiences as well.
