I find this distressing

Down screening urged for all pregnant women
Explaining this and other genetic testing is a lot more difficult than this article makes it seem. And I worry that this feeds into the eugenics movement.

One of the big problems with being an OB care provider is the cultural expectation that I will be able to promise or guarantee perfection. Not possible. Not at all.


Christ is Born!

My cousin and his wife have a daughter with Down Syndrome, and I heard that after she was born "the test didn't show anything wrong". Well, so what? was my response. Enjoy her and move on.

Anyway, she has the MOST amazing smile of any baby I've ever seen.

My husband and I have a son with Down. We adopted him when he was an infant. His birth mother told me she would have aborted him had she known. She was 34 years old.
