I saw that they were going to discuss that topic so I watched last night's Numb3rs instead.
Too much stress that early in the morning for me.

I watched it, and found it quite schocking.
What would happen if your baby was born with a chromosomal disorder that wasn't spotted at the 20-week scan.
What if everything seemed fine, but your child was later found to be developmentally delayed, or autistic, what would you do then?
It was very upsetting to watch.
But the little boy with ds was sooooo cute!
He made me smile through my tears.Teary grin!
