So my child has a disability. I found that out when he had his first month check up. The doctor told me he look like he had down syndrome. So she sent me to Westchester Medical Genetics to have him evaluated. They drew blood examined him and ekg and did an echo found out he had a hole in his heart, and that indeed he had down syndrome but a mild cause. The genetic doctor told us when he is a year old to come back and get his heart checked again to see if it closes on its own. My son is now 16 the whole in his heart closed up on its own when he was 1 yr old and he is just like a normal child with a mild case of down syndrome.

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
