I had a healthy son.  Then I had a termination at 19 - almost 20 - weeks in 1999 - my daughter also had Down Syndrome.  I was only 26.  I went on to have 2 more healthy sons in the years after - one of them shares her birthday. I have experienced stigma, I have lost a few friends, but in the end, none of that matters.  It just matters how we get up each day and just get on with it.
