Victoria, will you please tell us a little about yourself? Okay. My name is Victoria Ibe. I am a mother. I have got two boys. Also, I am the founder of Lovely Heritage Down Syndrome Charity. Victoria, your f irst child, was born with Down Syndrome. At what point did you discover this? I discovered this challenge after I had my son. Immediately the doctor discovered that something was wrong with him and took him to the intensive care unit and from there they ran some tests on him and came back with results that he had been diagnosed to have Down Syndrome. Wow. And this was your first child. So how did this information impact your life? You had carried the baby for nine months; there were no β€œ lf laming myse b y ll a re ’t sn I wa as stage, but I w at the initial why uestions like q d o G g in ask to this happen ld u o sh y h w , me did I wrong what t n e w t a h w me ome this should c t a th g n ro w do I don’t ’t drink, and n o d I ? e m to id I what they sa te a I . e k o sm gnant, hile I was pre w t a e ld u o sh I fruit, veg, so t, ie d d e c n la ba really , what have I g in k ₯Έ)Ρ )Μ)„)ά)”)Ρ‘…Ёέ₯±°΅…¬)œ)Έ)ΙΌ)ά)”)Έ)Ό))Έ)₯±°έ₯Ρ ½ά) )Œ)„)”)Ψ)„) )”)΄)MεΉ‘Ι½΅”Έ+ ¬€Θΐ)=h5……ι₯Ή”՝ΥΝΠ€ΘΐΔΰ)₯ΝΝՕ́½Θ½Ή•ΙΉΜε½Τ‘₯‘»ŠeЁ‘…Ω”…Ήδέ…ΙΉ₯ΉœΡ‘…Ёё₯́݅́½₯ΉœΡΌ‘…ΑΑ•Έ)…ΉΡ‘•Έε½Τ‘…Ρ‘”‰…‰δ…Ή½ΠΡ‘₯́ɕΑ½ΙΠΈ½Θ„™₯ΙΝЁΡ₯΅”΅Υ΄°‘½ά)‘₯₯Ё₯΅Α…Πε½Υȁ±₯™”ό)%Ё݅́„Ν‘½¬™½Θ΅”°„Ω•Ι䁉₯œΝ‘½¬‰•…ΥΝ”™₯ΙΝЁ…Ή™½Ι•΅½ΝΠ°)$‘₯Ή½Π­Ή½άέ‘…Ё½έΈMεΉ‘Ι½΅”έ…́…±°…‰½ΥЁё•ΈΈ$­Ή•ά)Ρ‘•Ι”έ…́ͽ΅•Ρ‘₯Ήœ…±±•ΝΑ•₯…°Ή••‘Μ°‰ΥЁ$‘₯‘»ŠeЁ­Ή½ά΅Υ )…‰½ΥЁ½έΈMεΉ‘Ι½΅”°ΥΡ₯Ν΄…ΉΡ‘”Ι•ΝЁ½˜Ρ‘•΄ΈΉ……₯Έ°)₯Ё݅́„Ν‘½¬‰•…ΥΝ”…±°Ρ‘ɽ՝ ΅δΑΙ•Ή…Ήδ$έ…́™₯Ή”$έ…Μ)‘•…±Ρ‘δ$έ•ΉΠΡΌΡ‘”‘½Ρ½Ί™½ΘΝ…ΉΜ…Ή•Ω•ΙεΡ‘₯Ήœέ…́½½°)Ρ‘”Ν…Έ°Ρ‘”‰±½½Ρ•ΝΡΜ°ΝΌ₯Ё݅́„‘՝”Ν‘½¬ΡΌ΅”Έ ΥЁ$±…Ρ•Θ)…•ΑΡ•΅δ™…Ρ”‰•…ΥΝ”$‰•±₯•Ω•Ρ‘…Ёё₯ΉΜ‘ΌΉ½Π©ΥΝЁ‘…ΑΑ•Έ)±₯­”Ρ‘…Π°‰•™½Ι”Ρ‘•δ‘…ΑΑ•Έ½­Ή½έ́ݑ䰁ͼ$…•ΑΡ•₯ΠΈ) ΥЁ…Ёё”Α½₯ΉΠέ‘•Ι”ε½Τέ•Ι”ΝΡ₯±°ΡΙε₯ΉœΡΌ½΅ΑΙ•‘•Ή½Θ…•ΑΠ)έ‘…Ёё”‘½Ρ½Ί‘…Ρ½±ε½Τ°‘₯ε½Τ™••°Υ₯±Ρ䰁ё…Ёё₯́΅₯‘Ё‰”΅δ)™…ձЁ΅…剔$‘₯‘»ŠeЁ‘ΌΝ½΅•Ρ‘₯ΉœΡ‘…Ё$Ν‘½Υ±‘…Ω”‘½Ή”°‘₯ε½ΤΌ)ёɽ՝ Ρ‘…ЁΑ‘…Ν”ό)e•Μ°$έ•ΉΠΡ‘ɽ՝ Ρ‘…ЁΑ‘…Ν”‰ΥЁΉ½Π™½ΘΡ½Ό±½Ήœ‰•…ΥΝ”$‘₯Ή½Π)‰•±₯•Ω”₯Ё݅́΅δ™…ձЁ‰•…ΥΝ”$‘…Ω”Ν••Έ½Ρ‘•Θ΅Υ΅ΜΡ‘…Ё͡½­”)…Ή‘Ι₯Ή¬…Ήε•ΠΡ‘•ηŠeΩ”½Π‘•…±Ρ‘䁍‘₯±‘Ι•ΈΈ$…΄Ή½ΠΝ…ε₯Ήœ)₯Ё₯́½½ΡΌΝ΅½­”½ΘΡΌ‘Ι₯Ή¬Έ$έ…Ν»ŠeЁɕ…±±δ‰±…΅₯Ήœ΅εΝ•±˜…Π)Ρ‘”₯Ή₯Ρ₯…°ΝΡ…”°‰ΥЁ$έ…́…Ν­₯Ήœ½ΕΥ•ΝΡ₯½ΉΜ±₯­”έ‘䁡”°έ‘δ)Ν‘½Υ±Ρ‘₯́‘…ΑΑ•ΈΡΌ΅”έ‘…ЁݕΉΠέΙ½Ήœέ‘…Ё‘₯$‘ΌέΙ½Ήœ)Ρ‘…Ёё₯́͑½Υ±½΅”ΡΌ΅”ό$‘½»ŠeЁ‘Ι₯Ή¬°…Ή$‘½»ŠeЁ͡½­”Έ$…Ρ”)έ‘…Ёё•δΝ…₯$Ν‘½Υ±•…Ёݑ₯±”$έ…́ΑΙ•Ή…ΉΠ°‰…±…Ή•‘₯•Π°)™ΙΥ₯Π°Ω•œ°ΝΌ$έ…́ё₯Ή­₯Ήœ°έ‘…Ё‘…Ω”$Ι•…±±δ‘½Ή”έΙ½ΉœΡ‘…Ёέ₯±°)΅…­”΅”‘…Ω”„‘₯±°έ₯Ρ ½έΈMεΉ‘Ι½΅”Έ
