Ella's Endeavor

Finding out that your newborn child is diagnosed with Down syndrome can be one of the scariest things. Many parents feel fear, anger, shock, guilt, overwhelmed, confused, and are left with asking “why me?” We know this from experience! Our baskets are meant to welcome new families to the Down syndrome community. We want them to know that they are not alone, and that there is a strong community of support waiting to help. We donate baskets to families that receive the news that their child has Down syndrome. We give baskets to a social worker or other contact within hospitals, who then offers them to the family.

We will also deliver baskets by word of mouth. Some families do not receive the diagnosis until they have departed the hospital, and we certainly do not want to leave them out. If you know someone who has recently received the news that their child has Down syndrome, please contact us.
