My guest today is Andrea Roberts. She is a 23 year old Mama and wife! She was taken by surprise when her beautiful son was born with Down Syndrome, but wouldn't have it any other way. She created a blog to spread awareness of Down Syndrome and document her life. She hopes to be able to share her thoughts and story in a positive way so that others can see what it's REALLY like to have a child with Down Syndrome. 

In this episode we dive into...

  • Genetic Testing
  • Her surprise
  • The support after having her baby
  • What life is like with a special needs child
  • What she hopes to accomplish with her blog
  • What she has done to spread awareness
  • Places to find support through your journey
