Late last night I received a message from a guy called Andrew. I have asked and he's given me his permission to share the content with you... "Good evening. I have just come across your page on Facebook and have had, in the kindest way possible, only a brief scan of the content but feel that this will 'help' us! Myself and my partner Joanne are expecting a baby in mid January and we were told last Monday that our baby has Downs Syndrome. She is a little girl and we have decided to name her Rosie. I read your comments about the terminology used when testing during pregnancy and can relate exactly to the points you raise! I/We have been completely overwhelmed with varied reactions to our news but we are functioning with positivity and now joy at our forthcoming arrival! We also received what we feel to be a major set back Friday just gone. Joanne recieved a phone call at 8.30am when I was at work, asking her why she was late for her appointment. When she asked, "What appointment?", the response was "Your termination appointment" To say we were horrified and deeply upset doesn't cover it and we are currently awaiting an explanation from ******* Hopsital" The reason I asked if he'd mind if I shared it, is because yet again it shows that hospitals and their healthcare professionals all over the country, are (in some cases), working on the assumption, that expectant parents, who get a diagnosis of Down Syndrome are going to opt for a termination. They're booking people in for appointments that they haven't alluded to wanting. They're still pushing towards women aborting their babies if they're found to have a prenatal diagnosis, which isn't the impartial, open minded attitude I'd hoped they'd have Andrew and I had a couple of messages back and forth and I've told him how sorry I was that they'd had to deal with that. That I felt it was insensitive but sadly not uncommon. Andrew replied... "I really do feel that it highlights the inability for our system to consider those in our situations vulnerability! I am horrified to think that potentially that telephone call could have influenced someone else to have a termination, who had initially not agreed to. Fortunately for Joanne and myself, the sheer upset and anger their misconduct has caused, has made us realise just how much Rosie means to us and how much we want her to be part of our lives! We are so grateful for pages such as yours as it throws a completely new light on our position! Today's outlook is much more accepting and already we have some lovely positive stories to share!" I'm so thrilled that Andrew and Joanne's outlook is such a positive one. And despite feeling let down by their hospital, Rosie is still a longed for and loved baby NB - Names/dates have been changed and the name of the hospital haven't been disclosed (as the couple are taking this up with them themselves) #hospital #healthcareprofessionals #midwives #sonographers #doctors #NIPT #MidwivesRCM #DSA #SEN #parentingblog #parentingblogger #pblogger #pbloggers #ukparentingblogger #ukparentingblog #mumsofinsta #mumsofinstagram #momsofinsta #momsofinstagram #mumblogger #momblogger #downsyndrome #dontbesorry

"On the evening of July 8th, 2017, a devastating forest fire swept across the hills to the east of Oroville and destroyed Pastors Steve and Vicki Orsillo's beloved family home. The Orsillos, along with their adult son, Mark, who has Down Syndrome, were only able to grab a few clothes and precious photos and their dog, Mac, before being forced to leave their beautiful property as the flames moved up the ridge behind them. They later learned that the fire overtook their house soon after. Their home, plus Mark's little basement apartment, was completely incinerated. Mark was distraught over the loss, especially of his treasured DVD collection. To console him, Mark's sister Danielle decided to try to bless him with a few new DVDs and posted on social media to see if anyone else wanted to donate. They did! Hundreds of movies poured in as the story swept around the country. This is Mark as he sees the movies for first time after losing them all to the fire."
