It breaks my heart that for every 1 of these little Noah’s that you see, there’s 9 other Noah’s you don’t see. 9 our of 10 children who are known to have Down syndrome through prenatal testing are aborted. These children are never given a shot at life. Never given a chance.
So many families are told a lie. The lie is that you have to be afraid of the results of a Down syndrome screening test. Some in the medical community even make it seem as if having a child born with Down syndrome is a sad story. A compromise. A settling of something less, when what you really desired was something more.
Some women are even afraid to have children out of fear of having a child born with Down syndrome. I want to let you know that is a lie. These children are worth it. So very worth it.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words….well here are 25 beautiful pictures of our son Noah…who just so happened to have been born with Down syndrome. I have you find more than 25,000 words of encouragement as you look at this little boy who is full of life, and longs to be loved.
Our hope in creating this website is that the world is to help the world see what life is like for a family raising a child born with Down syndrome. We hope we can remove some of the unknown about Down syndrome, and in turn give people hope, encouragement, and support. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us, or ask check out our Facebook page where thousands of parents are waiting to say hi to you!:)
Down syndrome is ok. It’s very ok.

Thanks to Melanie Rose for the incredible photos of our son.
