Special Needs Niece
My step brother's wife recently had a baby with heart problems and down's syndrome, and I'm not all that familiar with Down's syndrome.
Does anyone have any advice on how I should treat them, is there anything special I need to know about being around my new niece, she's sweet and beautiful, but I don't want to do anything wrong. And I don't want to ask her mom because she looks so tired and worn out right now, but happy. I'm so proud of them both.
Thanks in advance for any advice

The articles I've read about this topic all indicate that we do not have to have a special attitude around these children. Just be natural and show her that you love her - if you want to buy her gifts, make sure that they are mostly educational and be with her as you would be with any other child. There are quite a few articles on the Internet that can tell you a little more and give you additional information on Down Syndrome as well.
