It turns out her instincts were right. When the Texas mom welcomed a daughter, Amadeus Reign Rojas, five months ago, she realized Amadeus was different from her other kids. Labor, she says, was slow-going until all of a sudden, it wasn’t. "Next thing I know, my sweet baby is in my arms, and as soon as I looked down I saw it," she tells Redbook. "I saw it in my baby's face. I thought to myself: 'My baby has Down syndrome.'"

Rojas and her husband, Fernando, took Amadeus, nicknamed Ami, to the hospital after her midwife confirmed Ami was showing signs of Down syndrome. There, Ami received a formal diagnosis - but doctors also discovered the little girl had a congenital heart defect.

Ami had heart surgery on Tuesday, and Rojas says she’s growing stronger by the day. The baby has been already extubated and has started eating slowly. But Ami’s older siblings - Xavier, 10, twins Kaydence and Zyden (8), and Ezra (23 months) - can't help but worry. Rojas says they don't like leaving her in the hospital, and are already thinking about what life will be like for her when she grows older, like all good, protective older siblings do. "They love her. They love sharing her story with their friends," she says. "And they are so excited to be a part of the Down syndrome community."

About half of children with Down syndrome are also born with heart defects. In an effort to bring awareness to congenital hearts disease like Ami's, the Rojas family designed T-shirts and sold them to friends and family. They've also been sharing updates using the hashtag #amitourage.

Chinese baby born four years after parents' death in car crash .
BEIJING: A surrogate mother has given birth to a baby boy in China four years after his parents died in a car crash, Chinese media reported. The deceased couple was undergoing fertility treatments before the fatal accident in 2013. Their parents fought a drawn-out legal battle to gain access to the couple's fertilised embryos, kept in a hospital in the eastern city of Nanjing. The baby boy - nicknamed "Tiantian," or "sweet" in Mandarin - was born on December 9 to a Laotian surrogate, the Beijing News reported Tuesday. Surrogacy is illegal in China, forcing those who can afford it to look for potential options abroad. Laos has become the latest impoverished nation in Asia to witness a flourishing but legally opaque commercial surrogacy industry after countries like Thailand, Cambodia and Nepal outlawed the practice in recent years. "He's always smiling. His eyes are like my daughter's, but he looks more like his dad," new grandmother Hu Xingxian, told the state-run newspaper. The grandparents had to clear several hurdles to transport the embryos out of China and prove the paternity and nationality of the baby once it was born. "First we thought of using air freight, but none of the airlines were willing to take the thermos-sized bottle of liquid nitrogen where the four embryos were stored," Liu Baojun, a surrogacy expert who assisted the families, told The Beijing News.
