Why are there so few children with Down syndrome in my town?

A reader from the Courier Journal asks this question and offers two new resources for women carrying a child with Down syndrome:Down Syndrome and the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network
.Read more here;

On October 1, launched. This website provides a free downloadable book and an interactive blog for expectant mothers who have received a test result for Down syndrome and decided to continue their pregnancy. It shares information the authors have found helpful from their years of providing support to expectant mothers.
Also on October 1, the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network launched. This is a resource that maintains a list of more than 250 families from across the nation who are waiting to adopt a child with Down syndrome. Too often, this option is not known or offered to an expectant mother.

Spread these links around, so that they become the first sites to come up on Google when you do a Down syndrome search When a woman is facing a prenatal diagnosis, we want the good news to get out there!

I'll be on the Drew Mariani Show today

At 6PM EST, the Drew Mariani Show, as part of their Marian Retreat In Mary's Hands, will be playing my story of  "The Prayers of  a Little Saint" from Mary's Touch Program on Catholic Radio International. Afterwards, Drew and I will discuss the story, and may even take calls. I look forward to telling you how much  my daughter Christina with Down syndrome has taught me though her simple trust in Our Lady.
