On October 1,www.downsyndromepregnancy.org 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!
