Best Booklet on the Market for a DS Diagnosis
Receiving a diagnosis of Down syndrome through prenatal testing can be unexpected, confusing, and difficult for many parents. In this booklet, those individuals will receive the most up to date information about what having a child with DS might be like for them as well as a discussion of other options - including termination and adoption. Photographs of children with DS at play allow readers to observe without feeling cajoled to either continue the pregnancy or terminate. It's a beautifully done book with many resources and a fair and unbiased look at the options that most individuals will consider after a diagnosis of DS. Additionally, this booklet has been approved by many nationally recognized groups from both sides including the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists as well as the National Down Syndrome Congress. I would recommend this book to any person needing more information about a diagnosis of Down syndrome; it's the best thing that you could buy (and it's free!).
