Hello to everyone - My husband and I were just informed of a special baby that we were going to be having in April. I am scared to death. Our son Brody will have AVSD and Down Syndrome.

I am wondering if once he is born how long does he stay in the hospital, does he go to the NICU, when he come home is he going to be suseptible to catching anything, what about having animals in the home?

I told you that I am full of questions. I am looking for other Moms to help me prepare for some of the things that might happen. Thank you all for listening and hopefully answering some possibilities.

Feb. 2, 2008 at 9:10 AM Sweetie I am firm believere that God chooses special parents to have special chidren. I am thrilled to hear a woman that is not going to abort the child because it will be too much to handle . If you go to the search bar at the top of the page you can type in downs syndrome and avsd and find moms who are going through what you are facing in your future. I found a joural you might want to view this woman is one of those spectacular women that God handpicked to care for his special ones. http://www.cafemom.com/journals/read.php?post_id=559991
