children and adult with DS are lots of joy they are happy people , Mai , my little girl 13.3 years is my life . Yes definitely you will have hard times and lots of happy time , like any other child. I knew she has DS after delivery that was the shocking time for me , you are lucky to know earlier and be prepared for what is coming.
love your baby and welcome him/her. he/she is a gift from God.

I was pregnant with a high-risk pregnancy when I first read the column by Dear Abby. I think it's totally fitting now. Here's the link:

Help for Expectant Mom in France

I would certainly recommend she contact a local or regional advocacy group in France, or the international Down-syn list.

There is a French translation of Welcoming Babies with Down Syndrome at the Special Needs Children website at Bellaonline / Family: Accueillir les bébé trisomiques

There is an article in French from the Dec 09 Riverbend DS Newsletter:

Cinquantenaire de la trisomie 21. Retour sur une découverte

There is contact information for the writer who is in Paris.
