The Main Thing:

For Episode 053 we’re welcoming Stephanie Thompson, Director of the National Down Syndrome Adoption Network (NDSAN). She is the parent of a son with a Down Syndrome diagnosis and a professional who has been a lifeline and resource to so many families. She’s sharing her personal story along with the care and support the NDSAN provides locally and nationally to adoptive families.

As prospective or current adoptive families, there are so many pieces that can seem overwhelming and like just too much. Facing any type of diagnosis for your child will leave you with questions and wondering who else has been there and what kind of support there is as you walk the journey. For parents of children with a Down Syndrome diagnosis, NDSAN has become a highly sought-after resource. Whether you’re pursuing a Down Syndrome adoption, have recently learned of a diagnosis, want to know more about what it would be like to welcome a child with this diagnosis into your family forever, or are supporting a family who is touched by Down Syndrome — this episode is for you!
