Ann Poirier

There’s nothing down about it...

When we received Alice’s Down syndrome diagnosis shortly after she was born on St. Patrick’s Day 2018, we thought our lives were over. We were shocked. Devastated. Lost. The first few days were a blur. The first few weeks were tough. The first few months were transitional.
And then we started to understand. We started to realize that this new unexpected life was nothing to feel sad about. Why had we been crying? Because we believed the common, outdated misconceptions about Down syndrome. Today, Alice is almost two years old and she is our shining star! She has opened our hearts and minds to a world that we didn’t know existed. We look back on that day she was born when we cried tears of sadness... and we wonder why our tears weren’t those of happiness and thankfulness. If you get a chance to have a baby with an extra 21st chromosome, do it. You’ll never ever ever regret it.
