I am trying to post a fact a day to help bring awareness of Down Syndrome. I found this sight that will guide you towards the right thing to say, or NOT to say should you ever have the privilege of meeting a child with DS. I wished I had found this site right after my Mattie was diagnosed. I didn't know "what to say" or "what not say". If you find yourself, meeting a child with DS, keep in mind the child - NOT the diagnosis. Here is the link Diagnosis Down Syndrome.
