New Parent Letter of Introduction

As parents who have experienced the birth of a child with Down syndrome, we know how difficult this time can be. We are familiar with the many feelings and questions you may have. We hope that the materials in this section of our website, and the suggestions that follow, will help you.

We suggest you talk to your family and friends as openly and simply as possible. This will help them to understand and be comfortable with you and your baby. We found that other parents can provide you with good information and support. Many of your concerns can be put into perspective by seeing them and how they have adjusted to this situation.

We suggest you read materials on the topic of Down syndrome that are recent and up-to-date. Older materials are inaccurate and are not helpful. We welcome your call. It is the only way we know that you have had a new baby. We are available to answer your questions, offer support, listen, and provide you with medical, educational and recreational contacts.

The Down Syndrome Aim High Resource Center is a not-for-profit organization that is made up of families and professionals committed to increasing opportunities for individuals with Down syndrome. The DSAHRC strives to enlighten and encourage the broader community to recognize the individuality, uniqueness, and capabilities of individuals with Down syndrome, and to reflect the hopes and dreams of those individuals and their families.

Once again, congratulations! We look forward to meeting you and your precious new baby soon.
