Story

Finn's Story - by his mum Claire

My little Finn was born on 15th January 2017. Shortly after he was born he was diagnosed with Down's Syndrome. We were shocked and unexpectedly thrown into a new world of medical terms, never ending appointments and a massive adjustment of our expectations.

Finn is an amazing little boy and he brings us and all of those around us so much joy. He is just like any other 14 month old and getting cheekier but we know that his needs will increase as he gets older and we desperately want to make sure that he can have full access to all the support and expertise that now exists in this field to ensure that he reaches his potential. Just like any child should. He can, with the right intervention learn and flourish and genuinely contribute to society. Our hope for him is that he will be able to work and live independently when the time comes.

Raising awareness of Down's Syndrome is also vital for people to know that a diagnosis is not the end of the world and not to be worried or uncomfortable when meeting someone with an extra chromosome. My biggest worry for Finn is that people will automatically write him off as soon as they see him and have their own preconceived ideas of his abilities without even speaking to him and giving him the chance to prove them wrong. And he will.

Thank you so so much for all your support. We will use any money raised to pay for essential care for Finn in the future and to support the wonderful local charities who provide so much support for the Down's Syndrome community.
