Storyboard Description

The family's perceptions: Down's Syndrome

Storyboard Text

  • Coming home from the hospital
  • I can't believe our child has Down's Syndrome.
  • Honey, it is not something we can control. Some things just happen.
  • The family's perception of the child.
  • This is not our darling Sarah. Sarah was supposed to be our perfect little angel. I can't call her that.
  • Down's Syndrome
  • I know I will learn to love her for who she is, but this is just too much right now. What will our families think? We have already failed as parents.
  • Mike and I have just left the hospital after finding out that our first child, our daughter that we thought was going to be perfect, was born with Down's Syndrome.
  • Once we got home, our conversation continued. While this child is a product of the two of us, she is not the daughter I expected. I cannot give her the name we were originally planning on.
  • We were so distressed over this news that we just could not think straight. We knew everything would change when we had our first child, but never did I think it would change like this.
