“We were diagnosed at 18 weeks gestation and were so pleased when we found the DSNetwork one month prior to Joanne’s birth. DSNetwork represented a place to call “home” in a sense. It brought us together with others going through similar experiences, so we did not feel alone.” – Lisa, mother of Joanne
