Jun 15, 2017 | Chromosome Abnormality, Congenital Heart Defect, Down syndrome- Trisomy 21, Snapshot story

When the  doctor called Jessica  with test results that showed her unborn son would have Down syndrome, she immediately felt a sense of fear and anger she had never experienced before. Negative thoughts flooded her brain for days and weeks. She felt resentment and anger towards her pregnancy.

When she told her closest friends and family the news; their reactions were overwhelmingly positive and supportive. They showered her with love and told her how amazing he was going to be. And they were so right.
