What are some strategies to support the staff who care for a child with Down syndrome?
You should make a foundation. Make it popular. Make posters to advertise it like Hunter's Hope for example. Many people will make donations.

Remember that you have been gifted with a child that has a special disability. You are raising an angel in disguise, and one day you will be rewarded with a spot in heaven bec…ause of your love for this child. Just remember that they can't help their behavior, and try not to yell at them. Yelling doesn't work, even with neurotypical children.
That depends. Men with Down syndrome have been shown to be sterile, while women with Down syndrome are capable of carrying a child, with 50% likelihood that the child will be …born with Down syndrome.
Yes, there are support groups and organizations in many parts of the world. Just look on the Internet.
Yes, i believe that children with Down Syndrome should be with their mothers. No one can ever take the place of a mother and love the child the way a mother does.

A down syndrome child is fairly normal depending on the percentage of the case i.e. the intensity of the patient. I would know this because my sister is a down syndrome child …having it at only 5%. Basing on her case, her behaviour is normal although her appearance may show some signs. For instance, her cheeks were drooped downwards during the first few 13 months. She constantly hiccuped for some reason and had a problem with balance when she sits down. At later age her apperance changed gradually to normal and her hiccup stopped. Her understanding also quickened and she was rather smart. In short, what I'm trying to put out is that you could take care of her just like you would take care of a perfectly normal child. Support is also vital and her meals must be balanced.
Down's syndrome will give your child a total amount of 47 chromosomes in his/her somatic cells as opposed to the normal human who has only 46 chromosomes in his/her somatic ce…lls. In addition Down's syndrome will lower the metal ability of the child and will give the child distinct facial features (such as a very circular face). It also affects the fertility of the child as well. Males are mostly sterile and females can be fertile, but it is very hard to have a baby. Usually the baby is prematurely born, aborted naturally, or needed surgery to take out.
No! They are just as kind and gentle as regular people - in fact they ARE regular people. There is certainly no specific DS characteristic for 'harmful' behaviour. The quest…ion itself is a bit silly. Can ANY child be harmful? Of course they can, especially when they are brought up by parents who are 'harmful' or disfunctional. However, I would suggest that parents who a caring and stable enough to raise a disabled child are rarely 'harmful' people, so DS chaildren are rarely harmful, but tend to be loving and caring. That is my experience. They aren't as smart as normal people, and MAY have trouble recognising context. So things that may be acceptable in one place (hugging Mum & Dad for example) may be inappropriately applied in another (hugging people they meet).
Yes, children with Down syndrome can get adopted. I have two sisters, both have Down Syndrome, and both were adopted. They are amazing :)

The likelihood of an individual with down syndrome to conceive a child is extremely rare. There is infertility among both males and females with Down syndrome; males are usual…ly unable to father children, while females demonstrate significantly lower rates of conception relative to unaffected individuals. Women with DS are less fertile and often have difficulties with miscarriage, premature birth and difficult labor. Without implantation genetic diagnosis. approximately half of the offspring of someone with Down syndrome also have the syndrome themselves. Men with DS are almost uniformly infertile,, exhibiting defects in spermatogenesis. There have been only three recorded instances of males with Down syndrome fathering children
