We congratulate you on the birth, or expectation, of your new baby and we welcome you to Families Exploring Down Syndrome.

Kids with Down syndrome at the walk event


We are here to support you, to answer your questions and to help you make the parenting of your child positive & rewarding.

Nothing you did caused your new baby to have an extra chromosome. Everything you do as a nurturing parent will help your child become the best he or she can be. Give your little one time to grow, and you will soon find yourself excited and eager to share your child’s accomplishments and learning experiences.

We are here to listen, to support, and to help. Most of all we are looking forward to sharing in the wonderful joys that await you and your family.

If you want more information on Down syndrome, we recommend the National Down Syndrome Society’s website
