Welcome to Hidden Treasures~ The T21 Journey. We are so glad you found us.  When you get a diagnosis for your child, whether it is Down syndrome, or any other syndrome, there is a period of grieving and reflection that takes place.  We have all been there.  Some of the grief will come because you are worried for your child.  Some will come, because you are unsure of what is ahead.  And for some, the grief will come when you see the reaction of others, when they hear about your child’s diagnosis. Hidden Treasures was designed, and created, because at least one of us has felt the way you have felt.  It is our prayer, that you will see that this diagnosis is not the end of the world.  It is a diagnosis.  Your child is your child. With or with out the extra chromosome. We have all been where you are.  We have grieved.  And then we have gone on to learn a love that we never knew existed.  We learn that our children are not the beginning of despair, but the beginning of laughter, love and lessons.

Inside Hidden Treasures you will find many great sites about Down Syndrome.
