Here is another article from a DS mom telling how her baby was still her baby, even after hearing that he would be different from what she imagined: 

The losses I have already experienced and the tremendous hardships I've watched others weather have made me understand how much, much worse things could be than this. They have helped me see the good, and I am thankful for that, because there is so much good to see. I have also realized that while Atticus may not live the life I imagined, with my help and my husband's, he can and will live a great one, filled with all of the love and success and happiness that he is capable.
