First Time Blogger
After Camden's diagnosis of Down Syndrome I began frantically searching the Internet for anything and everything about DS. Even though I am a pediatric nurse, I will be the first to admit I only knew the basics and that wasn't a lot. What I found at first (medical conditions, developmental delays, cognitive impairments, etc) only added to my despair. I then started to read blogs, A LOT of blogs, and soon became comforted and at ease with my new reality. I kept thinking I would try the whole blogging thing out but then soon put it out of my mind. I'm not a writer. In fact, I'm probably borderline terrible at it! After 2 months of being on this journey I decided to try the whole blogging thing out mainly because its therapeutic to me, but also to share our lives with friends and family. I also hope that I can help others out who face a diagnosis of Down Syndrome just as other bloggers have helped me!
