Downsyndrome

Is there a group here on CM that is dedicated to downsyndrome?

I am looking for some information and can't seem to find it on the internet. 

My brother and his fiancee are pregnant with their second and they have found several abnormalities with their babe. She is about 5 months along and they have discovered a hole in the heart, galbladder on the wrong side, some sort of issue with bowels, and blocked kidneys. The reason they found all these issues is because they saw that the baby had sandal toe which is a soft marker for down sydnrome. They will be going next week to check if the babe's chromosomes.  They are both under 30 and don't have any family history of any of this - not sure if that is relevant or not. 

I can look up each individual abnormality, but can't find any information about a baby with all these things. I am really worried and want to offer support and advice to my brother and maybe some hope that the baby will be ok.
