We hear the numbers over and over again, 3,500+ children aborted every day in the United States, but because these children are aborted and never see the light of day, there is never a face associated with the little persons in the womb. Allow me to put a face on the children that should have been aborted due to doctor’s and society’s recommendations. These children have Down Syndrome and make up approximately 1 in 800 births.
The joyful faces of these children speak louder than words. The pictures alone touch your heart; yet, imagine being blessed with the opportunity to spend time with a child who has Down Syndrome. In an article published on Life News last month a mother shared her testimony about her baby girl Riley, who was born with Down Syndrome last year. The doctor advised Jennifer to abort, but she refused, and now Jennifer shares what a joy her Riley is and she calls Down Syndrome “Up” Syndrome:
Riley is now six months old and she is the happiest baby I have ever known. She has defied all the books and the people that said she would be “delayed”. My daughter is right on track. She does physical therapy, speech therapy and a little massage therapy throughout the week. (Her physical therapist is continuously amazed by her and can’t believe she has Down-Syndrome) Riley loves music, swinging in her swing and being talked to. But, she absolutely detests baths! She also has two awesome big sisters who take such good care of her. I couldn’t be a more proud mother.
So, if you are blessed to have been chosen to have a baby with “UP” Syndrome, or you know someone who has… SMILE! It’s the best thing that will ever happen to you. It’s a shame that our society and doctors are blind to this. Oh well, Riley will open their eyes!” Read More of Jennifer's Testimony
90% of the babies diagnosed with the possibility of having down syndrome are aborted. Please share this blog to help others see what gifts these children are, and to help spread the message that all life is meant to be treasured.
