Down Syndrome - This is our story!

Updated: Jan 11

My name is Manjula and I am a full-time working mum of a family of 4 - my husband Prakash, my daughter Verisa, and my son Jaylan, who has Down Syndrome. Just under four years after the birth of our daughter, my husband and I were blessed again with the birth of our son.

Jaylan is now 23 years old and attends an adult day-centre four days a week. I would like to talk to you about our family experiences of living with an individual with Down syndrome. My family and I will be writing our entries together and hope to give a different and honest perspective.


What will we bring to the table?

I will blog about different topics each month, throwing in a few anecdotes here and there. So here are a few that will be coming up:-
