DSNetwork is a great organization. They are able to support not only families with individuals with Down syndrome, but they provide information and programs to the community to better understand what Down syndrome is.
When I joined up with Down Syndrome Network I was in need of opportunities to socialize as a family and feel acceptance. I craved education so I could feel confident in myself as a mom of a child with a disability who had abilities. I also desired a place where I could give back by share my talents. A few years later I am still socializing, gaining confidence and giving back as my talents develop. I greatly appreciate what Down Syndrome Network has provided as our family travels the wonderful journey of Down syndrome.
We have been very blessed to be a part of the DS Network "family" for almost 3 years now. My husband & I joined the fantastic online support forum before my 2 1/2 yr old was even born. My son was diagnosed with having Down Syndrome in my 27th week of pregnancy and right away I found a wonderful support system and tons of information supplied by this organization. DS Network provides very informative speakers, social gathering, and a support forum that is wonderful. DS Network has truly been a wonderful guide on many levels in our life journey with our amazing little boy and I'm looking forward to participating in future events.
Down Syndrome Network has been a God-send to my wife and I as we've groped with the challenges of raising our 15 month old, Anabel, who has Down Syndrome. They've given us support emotionally with personal phone calls, but also in assisting us as we navigate the labyrinth of services that are needed.
