Although children with birth disorders face special hurdles as they grow, today's parents of challenged or disabled children should be able to benefit from a variety of resources and support systems. This program depicts the difficulties and uncertainties of a couple whose first child was born with Down syndrome. Now expecting their second baby, the family undergoes increased stress as their 10-month-old son awaits heart surgery. Viewers learn about the parents' initial reactions to his condition, their quick acceptance of it, and the ways in which they began to deal with his health issues. With input from medical experts and advice from other families, midwife and public health nurse Grainne Ryan helps the family build their knowledge and coping skills.
