Your dear college friend just had a baby with Down syndrome.
Response (pick one):
A. Wow, I'm glad it's you and not me... God only gives people what they can handle.
B. Congratulations on the birth of your baby. I don't know much about Down syndrome, but I want you to know I'm here for you and would love to know more when you're ready. Is there anything I can do for you? Bring a meal?
C. I'm so sorry. What a tragedy. Didn't you have the [prenatal] test?
D. Your baby doesn't look like he has Down syndrome. Maybe it's just a "mild" form.
Correct answer: (It should be obvious... B, or some version of that) A baby is a baby is a baby is a baby... no matter what! That mom just spent the last 9 (or so) months with that baby and the birth of a baby is to be celebrated first and foremost. Help your friend, as you would any friend, and be supportive. Be a comfort to her and offer to bring a meal or watch the baby while she rests.
