Parents encourage that more people accept Children with Down syndrome


There is always a risk that when babies are born, they will have some problems, either physically or mentally. Some flaws that occur can affect the development of the child, and it can continue later in life. Whatever the flaw or condition that can affect the baby, parents are there to love them and take care of them no matter what.

One of the conditions that may occur from childbirth is Down syndrome. Down syndrome occurs when a specific chromosome triple instead of doubling. And with Down syndrome comes slow cognitive development, and even when their cognitive abilities are developing, they still have some difficulties. It is a genetic malformation, so it only can be passed through genes and in no other way. Down syndrome is recognizable because people who have it have some specific facial appearance. So when Dan and Julie McConnell got the news that their newborn baby twins have Down syndrome, they reacted like it didn’t matter, they were just happy they became parents.

Dan and Julie decided that they were going to show the world that their two adorable babies. Even though they have Down syndrome, they are still two healthy, beautiful twins. On their social media, you can find photos and videos of how they raise their two babies. Like every other baby, it can be hard and challenging, but at the end of the day, the joy they can bring is limitless. 

Julies has said that if other parents get the news that their own baby is going to grow up having Down syndrome. Just a couple of clicks, and they can find their social media and see that life can be equally wonderful. She added that at the start, when you get the news, it may seem scary, and a lot of stuff is going through your mind about how it is going to be. Still, as time passes, they will find out that the joy those little babies bring is unmatched. 

The thing that Julie and Dan have created is a community where every parent can come and share their experiences and help other upcoming parents with children with Down syndrome.

Julie and Dan don’t deny that it takes their children a little more time to accomplish some tasks, but when they do complete them, they celebrate twice as much as normal parents will do.

What Dan hopes is that more and more people will try to understand and see that children with Down syndrome are human beings as well and that they are part of the community. The more people accept them, the better it is for everyone.

They say that they aren’t the first and will not be the last parents that will have kids with Down syndrome, and like everyone else, they learn along the way. If parents come together and share their experience, it can only help the present and future parents that will have kids with Down syndrome. Everyone can grow together and see their children mature into people that will go on to achieve what they set their mind to.
