    Keep your head up Dave. Kids develop at different stages and not everyone is the same.

    Best wishes to you and your family, Dave.

    Best wishes indeed. Stiff upper lip and all that, as a parent it must be soul-crushing, but the best thing you can do for the kid is to keep a positive face and give him the best life he can possibly have. I have a nephew who's severely autistic, about 7 years old and still can't really talk, and a friend who's child was born a few years ago with cystic fibrosis. Seeing those guys stay brave and put the work in regardless is inspiring.

    Turns out we had the syndrome wrong - it's Cornelia de Lange syndrome that the geneticist thinks he has

    Who's 'we'?

    You told us wrong or the geneticist got it wrong?

    Can he confirm the diagnosis rather than just telling you what he thinks? Maybe you guys should try a 2nd opinion.

    Anyway, regardless of the diagnosis, your baby is still a precious miracle of life! Kids are amazingly resilient with their development.

    Doctors/geneticists predicted/diagnosed a short meaningless life for Stephan Hawking, but that shows what they know about rare genetic disorders.

    We = my girlfriend and me. I actually deliberately forgot it but she thought she remembered, but she remembered incorrectly and found the doctor's notes yesterday which said what was discussed.

    Also, there's no actual diagnosis yet, I'm just having to deal with speculation at the moment. It won't be a matter of opinion when the tests come back in five weeks - we will know for sure then.
