One of ours goals is to bring hope to parents whose child has recently been diagnosed with Down syndrome. Read below to learn how you can help us, help “the next me.”
Parents of Children With Down Syndrome
If you’re the parent of a child with Down syndrome your story has the ability to bring hope to new parents. If you have a child with Down syndrome who is one year old, or older, and you live in the United States, you can help “the next me” by signing up to become a Hope Advocate. As a Hope Advocate you’ll receive a personalized Hope Kit, ongoing training, a plan to help you connect with new parents, and access to a private Facebook Group just for Hope Advocates!
Click here to join the hundreds of other parents across the country who have committed to help “the next me” as a Hope Advocate.
As a medical professional you have a tremendous opportunity to help “the next me,” and we have some great (and free) resources to help you do it. Our best resource is another parent of a child with Down syndrome, we call these families Hope Advocates, that you can connect your patients to. Hope Advocates receives resources, ongoing training, and can be a tremendous source of encouragement for the families you serve.
In addition, we have produced a “How to Deliver a Down Syndrome Diagnosis with Hope / Preferred Language Guide,” and a full color booklet for new parents: “hope stories: Encouragement & Answers for Parents of Children with Down syndrome” the we would like to send you.
If you’re interested in learning more about how Hope Story can help you, help others, or to request copies of our resources, please send us a message.
