Trisomy Online is an email based support group that aims to provide information and support to those whose lives have been touched by a diagnosis of trisomy. On this page some of our families have shared their stories and precious photographs in the hope that it may help others who are faced with similar situations. We invite you to read these stories, to meet us and our children.

"Maybe if I share the path I walk then a little more of your pain will vanish. I want you to heal, whoever you are. I don't care what pain you've brought the world, I just want yours to subside. No matter what, your path is yours."

We hope that you will join our family, share your own story and let us be there to help you during good and the bad of the days ahead.

"When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.  The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares".  ~ Henri Nouwen
