A new "virtual" friend commented today about new research that has shown we carry all our children's cells in our bodies, and thus those of us with children who have Down syndrome carry that extra in us as well. I went and read an article, curious as to what that might mean for those with this extra. But there was nothing at least in this article. It's such a far out concept anyway. I mean, all of my children have left behind cells inside of me. Right now. I literally will carry them in me until I die. But the thought that I have some cells with an extra chromosome? That blows me away.
