New Parents

Designer Genes extends a warm welcome to your brand new baby.

Designer Genes is made up of families, who have children and adults of all ages with Down syndrome, aspiring to offer each other friendship, support and a network to share information.

Being told your beautiful new baby has Down syndrome is not easy news. It is a time of strange emotions—happiness for your new baby, sadness and grief for the baby you thought you would have, and confusion about what the future will hold.  Know there is no right or wrong way to feel, except love for this new life you created.  Amazingly, each day the future will be brighter as you begin to realize all the wonderful things your child will do.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’re looking forward to meeting you and that new baby.
