My name is Sunni and I have 4 boys, Kohen 6, Chayse 3 nearly 4, Leo 2 and Isaac 10 (stepson) and my one and only baby girl Aaliya 3 1/2 months. Aaliya was diagnosed with downs syndrome when she was 2 weeks old and I thought my whole world was falling apart, however with time, i have grown to realise that i wouldnt have life any other way now.I count myself lucky that there were no other major health concerns for her with all other tests performed coming back with good results. I feel blessed and wonder if there are many other mums in similar situations. I never had any of the tests that can identify ds early as i was not considered high risk. At 25 years of age i didnt even really think much about it. but i am so glad that i didnt because i have no idea what i would have done with the results, a decision im glad i never had to make. Within the last 3 1/2 months my life has had a complete change around and now we are heading in a slightly different direction, but i just couldnt imagine what life would be like without her.?
Congratulations on your wonderful family. Im not a mum with a child with Downs, but on of my closest friends has downs and she is the most wonderful, caring, perfect person ive ever met in my whole life! If everyone were even a quarter as nice as Sarah, the world would be a much better place. She certainly makes my life shine.
