The Diary of a Not So Ordinary Boy

I find it utterly shocking, the horrible little statistic I read this week, that told me of the women who find they are carrying a baby with a little extra something in the form of an extra chromosome, 95% have a termination.

95%

I find that so sad.  I find it so sad because it speaks to me of fear.  Of the fear we feel of the unknown, the fear we feel of difference, or disability.  Fear of a label we don’t understand.

So, here is part of my little part to show you that there is nothing much to be scared of (other than the normal paralysing fear that all parents feel when they realise that the baby they bring home from the hospital is their responsibility, and theirs alone).
