We are the adoptive parents of a baby with Down syndrome now 24 years old, almost 25! The advantage we have had over birth parents raising children with special needs is that we did not waste our time trying to figure out why he has DS or what we did to maybe cause or contribute to his being born with this disability. Involved with different people and different groups, I felt so sorry for the parents that beat themselves up over the child being born with a disability. Most of the disabilities just happen with the exception of those that result from drug and/or alcohol abuse(and what I would like to do to these parents.........). When you look at conception and all the micro-stuff that happens, it is mind boggling. Everyone knows what a wasteland the world has become with everything polluted and poisoned and all the odd things they are playing with when it comes to the food supply, medical field, etc. Just take a deep breath and take the advice I got from a very kind gentleman in Adult Protective Services when I was at the end of my rope trying to figure out how to move my child to the "adult" world, "We do the best we can."
