Don't Judge the Quality of a Person's Life By a Diagnosis


Isn't this awesome???  

Did you know that 9 out of 10 prenatal Down Syndrome diagnoses end in medical termination?

Whether it's Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, or Cerebrocostomandibular Syndrome, you can't judge the quality of a person's life by a diagnosis.  Doctors might try to scare you by describing a life full of doctors, medical equipment, and sacrifices.

Well, yes, we do have a lot of that.  But we also have laughter, hugs, wrestling, dolls, smiles, kisses, sassiness, and cuddling.   And that definitely outweighs the medical stuff!

So please don't judge the quality of a person's life by a diagnosis.  


I'm so glad we didn't!
