"This is my handsome firstborn son when he was a baby. The Scottish nurse who told me I was pregnant said, 'Don't worry; we can undo this,' even though she knew I was recently married. The docs doing genetic testing to see if I was a potential carrier of my dad's muscular dystrophy asked many times if I wanted to know for 'termination purposes'. Then they said he had several markers for Down Syndrome and that I should abort.

He was induced late when I developed pre-eclampsia and was born perfectly healthy and I recovered from massive blood loss.

Today he's almost 4 and the doc says he intellectually 2 years ahead! I get compliments on him all the time and he's the best big brother to his 6 month old little brother." -Alice
