A group of fathers in Indiana meet to support each other as fathers of children with Down syndrome.  They call themselves D.A.D.S. (Dads Appreciating Down Syndrome).  For new parents, the initial diagnosis can be overwhelming, but this group helps new and veteran fathers by offering critical support, shared stories, and a common bond.  It’s a great story of how these dads celebrate joy in parenting.

  1. This sounds like a very good support group. I have a niece who has Downs Syndrome who is now in her late 40’s. She lives with her mother. I have seen some of the struggles they went through, but Lanie is a very Happy person most of the time and a very loving person all of the time. There was no such group when she was growing up, but her parents did very well raising her and had the patience of Job.
