I just learned that the country of Copenhagen hopes to eradicate all births of babies with a prenatal diagnosis of DS with free testing and abortions. Pray for these babies and that their mothers do not succumb to the pressure by the government to abort their pregnancies. I am the mother of a 2 year old with DS who is the joy and light of my life. I wish I had a dozen children like her.

I was caregiver for my Downs Syndrome sister for over twenty years after our mother died. She was a very holy and sacred person, the size of a child all her life. Many unexplainable medical and holy things happened in her lifetime and I've written a book about her that I hope to get published. She looked like a ten year old child all her life, but lived to be six days from 66 yrs. of age.

The Rosary Mediations at the bottom of the Home Page are absolutely beautiful. They convey such a desire for humility and love. May God generously bless all those who pray these mediations.

Please pray for my son, Tom, and my grandson, Daniel. I will try to get the book by Natalie Hale, "Down Syndrome Parenting 101--Must have Advice for Making Your Life Easier". Please pray for Tom and Milvia as this is their first child. Daniel is 3 and a half years old. Thank you, Betty Waller

Our daughter, Christina, is 11 years old with Down syndrome and ADHD. She loves to swim, compete in gymnastics, horseback riding, go to museums, and go on rides at king's island. She is very joyful and loving. Thank you so much for your website!

Our son James who is 11 has Down Syndrome AND Autism! This is very uncommon to be dually diagnosed with both DS-ASD. Consequently, James does not fit in very well with just the DS community or within the Autism community. He has many delays and issues and we are most grateful for any and all intercessory prayers on his behalf. Thanks much and God bless!!

This is pretty amazing!!!!! As an Orthodox Christian I a have been looking for something like this for 10 years. A priest in our community just gave this to me and it's a great resource to have when in doubt, or feeling overwhelmed. We as parent's of children who happen to have Down syndrome often times lack the patience and tollerence of those in the community, and this just gives us reassurance that through God, we can muster up a little here and there to just make it through the day. Funny how things just come a person's way when they need it the most. I was asking if there was a blessing for children who happen to have have Down syndrome that are included in gen ed classrooms, and for their teachers to guide them as they promote inclusive societies and basic civil rights. Because those added efforts require guidance and prayer and above all the Hand Of God. So refreshing to have this resource available to me.

After reading your story I can see why you chose St. Robert as the patron saint for Down syndrome.
