Rachel's Story

Rachel was born on 14th September 1999.She was delivered at home after taking everyone by surprise and almost being born on the bathroom floor! It was 24hours later that we found out that she had Downs syndrome.It came as a huge shock to ourselves,our family,and friends.We thought we would never get back to normal.Over the months that followed we slowly came to terms with her "disability" and would not change her for the world.

Recommended Down Syndrome Sites

If you do a web search for "Down syndrome" on any of the major search engines, you'll now get thousands of websites in return. When I first started this list, my intention was to make it as comprehensive as I could, and with only a few hundred sites, it used to be easier. With the rapid expansion of the internet over the last three years, however, that goal has become almost impossible. So here are the sites that I feel have the most to offer parents of children with Down syndrome ("DS" for short).
