Hello, I\'m Noelle and a Mom to 2 children. My 2-1/2 year old boy has Down Syndrome. Jaden was diagnosed after he was born, and we were just as shocked to learn about him having Down Syndrome as the Doctors. However, we quickly realized that the Doctors had nothing to offer us in the way of support or updated information. We immediately wondered why the Nurses and Doctors were so sad for us All they kept saying was \"I\'m so sorry.\" But We weren\'t sorry! We had a beautiful, healthy baby! Luckily for us, that was the last place we ever felt such a lack of support. I only wish I had known then, what I know now!
Those first negative expereinces in the Hospital, proved to be the last! Little did we know then, that the World would LOVE Jaden! Not only did our whole family instantly love and cherish Jaden, but so did all of our friends. We weren\'t met with a bit of Prejudice or sympathy! Then Why is it that the Medical Community, OBGYN\'s and Perinatologist\'s in particular, Still don\'t know how to handle giving a Diagnosis And why don\'t they offer immediate support and encouragement I have made it my mission to forever change the way parents receive a diagnosis given by their OBGYN\', Parinatologists and Genetic Counselors. I believe all parents should have immediate access to updated, factual information, resources, support groups, phone numbers, and websites pertaining to the diagnosis their baby has received!
The medical community needs to change their perception of who deserves to live and who doesn\'t. They need to be accountable for what they say and do regarding Unborn babies. This is about human life, potential and faith!
Please forward the name(s) of your prenatal & postnatal doctors, your city and state to add them to two new lists I have started. One list is for Doctor\'s you would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND because they offered all available support information and resources. The other list is for Doctors who OFFERED NO SUPPORT or Information. You are welcome to include hospitals and Geneticists also. Please be sure to include WHERE you are located. These lists will be posted on my 2 blogs. I am going to use these 2 lists along with this petition and my video blog to shine even more light on this issue!
Also, Please pass this petition on to everyone you know, every signature counts! We are going to make a difference, you\'ll see!
