My husband s brother has a 2 year old and her eyes look as if she has Down Syndrome. No one has ever said anything. Now my brother and his wife are about 24-28 weeks pregnant and have been told the unborn baby has a heart defect and 98% positive for Downs. My concern is if it is genetic. My wife and I would like to try for a baby. My brother is not giving us any straight answers about it. Thinking about getting checked by a genetics professional. Any suggestions would be. Great.
