Blogs – Here are some great blogs to follow for other real world experience in the world of special needs

Enjoying the Small Things – The author started the blog as a new mom. Her second daughter was born with Down Syndrome. Her blog’s focus is about being a mom, not about the special needs of her daughter though she does discuss it.

Baby Lemonade Blog – The author was given a prenatal diagnosis of Down Syndrome. She started her blog while pregnant with her daughter. As someone who got a prenatal diagnosis as well, I was so glad to be able to read the experience of someone in a very similar situation. The emotions, fears, joy are all very similar to my own.

Nothing Down About It – The author has 3 children. Her middle child, Welles, has Down Syndrome. She talks about life as a mom of 3. She wants to show that Down Syndrome is not as different as we think and not something to be down about.
