Identical twins Downs

I recently found out that my boys Alex and Blake will be born with Downs. I am terrified at what to expect. I do know that they are healthy so that's awesome. Do anyone know anyone who has twins with Downs? I have already met a few awesome people but no one with twins. Any feedback would be great thanks!

Hi!
I am glad the twins are healthy. Down’s Syndrome is often present in identical twins but can occur in twins of different sex, or in twins of same sex who are not identical. These babies are really wonderful, cute and very loveable. Today, there is a lot of help available about raising them, their education, and helping them lead a normal life. Since they will be together, there will be a lot of emotional bonding between them. Iam glad you have found people with similar situation. There are support groups on net with parents who have twins with Down’s Syndrome. You can go over the experiences they share. If you join support group in your area, you may come across similar parents. Take care!

I have a georgous 9 yr old daughter who happens to have Down syndrome.
Read all you can about the positive experiences of these kids.  They will
shift your paradigm and you will truely understand a love in its purest form.
My daughter can read/ tell a joke and is more understanding and caring then I ever could imagine.  She is my 5th child.

It will be a hard road at times as all children are, but you will benefit in many ways......
