Alan Lawrence Wants to Put a Positive Face on Downs Syndrome

Alan Lawrence Wants to Put a Positive Face on Downs Syndrome

Alan Lawrence of Paradise, Utah learned in October 2013 that his fifth child, William, would be born with Down syndrome. The Lawrences were shocked because this would be their first experience with Downs. Alan found the news very hard to take. He found himself having crying fits and grieving Wil’s disability. Mr. Lawrence began to feel better when his wife told him that Wil could turn out to be an asset for the family. The new baby was going to be a growth experience for the couple who needed to learn about Down syndrome and how it strengthens the family through the experience. Down Syndrome is the presence of an extra chromosome; the chances increase with the age of the mother during conception.
Upon returning home from the hospital, Alan and his wife decided to explore Down syndrome. The news was negative, telling them about the health problems these children faced and the life expectancy of about 60 years. Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence wanted to read about the positive side of Down syndrome and started finding information through blogs written by people who had family members with that disability. People at Anastasia Date are happy to learn that Alan was inspired to show the positive side of Down syndrome through his hobby of photography. He has a blog with pictures of Wil being active. Alan has a Youtube channel called “Bringing Light, ”which includes a special effect of Wil flying in the air.
