    I cannot believe my Aunty (her brother is the one who fathered the child) told my cousin. She told him after his girlfriend fell pregnant when they were both 16. They decided they were too young and they aborted the baby. My Aunty thought it was a wise decision and told my cousin about our Uncle who has a child that he doesnt acknowledge.

    Funnily enough, a few years ago my Mum and I were in the town where they all grew up and a lady said hello to my Mum and it was the woman who gave birth to my Uncle's child. Mum thinks that she kept the child (who would be in his early 40's now). It was hardly ever spoken about in their family, although my Nanna told my Mum once that she saw my Uncles girlfriend with a tiny baby but she didnt approach her.

    As I said before, I honestly wish I didnt know.

    I am the only one who knows, besides I assume my dad
    Down syndrome is a chromosomal abnormality, I don't think a previous abortion would have any effect on this??

    I've been married before. My DH, his parents, and obviously my family know about it. But none of our friends or the rest of DH's family know. They are ethnic and it's seen as shameful to them. We have kept it under wraps at the wishes of my DH. (I don't mind). I'm also only 26 so fairly young to have been divorced and remarried! I do worry what to tell our kids when they grow up though :/

    I think she means it more for a "karma" type aspect. Like the universe/god/whatever punishing her for it. Not that the abortion did something to her body which made her baby be born with Down Syndrome.

    I think AIM means that her mum thinks she's being punished for the abortion, that's why her brother has Down's syndrome.

    My grandfather killed himself. None of the grandchildren know but me we were all told that he got sick and passed away. Well my dad told me the truth one night about what really happened no body knows that I know.

    My ex in high school was addicted to speed for 2 years got me addicted to crack for about 6 months before I left him I told nobody about this at all my family thinks we just broke up.

    One of my uncles is a raging alcoholic and I had to look after his children for 2 years after school and holidays due to his addiction his children thought he was working.
