Celebrate our kids – the Sun

Always brings a proud smile to my face to write about the Down’s syndrome community. This piece for the Sun was one we organised back in March so it’s great to finally see it in print, just in time for World Down’s syndrome Awareness Month. Four mums tell readers why their children deserve to be celebrated for bringing sunshine into their families.

In the age of NIPT (non-invasive prenatal testing) the Down’s syndrome community fear that terminations will increase and the community will begin to shrink. What a sad world that would be. Let’s hope that alongside the new testing technique, we’ll see an improvement in the ‘bedside manner’ of medical professionals, who need to offer a realistic portrayal of what life with the condition actually looks like, in today’s world, not the 1970s.

For advice and support, Future of Downs is an excellent website. And you can read the Sun story in full here.
