Down syndrome in Australia

When Leo was born we learnt that he had Down syndrome there's no denying that we were in shock!

The days and weeks post-delivery highlighted what a special little guy he is, what a terrific big sister Emmy is going to be and how already OUR perception of what the 'perfect family unit' should be, has changed.

We were determined early on that Down syndrome would not define who Leo is, it would not define who he becomes as a young man, and nor would it define what he does with his life.


To us, he is our son, to others he is quite simply emmysbrotherleo!

So join us on this often light-hearted and occasionally heavy hearted look at the life of a child with Down syndrome and the family unit that develops as a result.
