Amber decided that she would do a gender surprise birth, but she had no idea that there would be an even bigger surprise: her precious little girl also has Down Syndrome.

Amber chose to have a water birth and asked the photographers of Birth Unscripted to document the process.

"I was there for maybe five minutes before the baby arrived — this amazing clear water birth like I always wanted!" Amber told Love What Matters.

"Next thing I knew, my sweet baby was in my arms and I had so many emotions; and as soon as I looked down, I saw it. I saw it in my baby's face. I thought to myself… my baby has Down syndrome."

While examing Amadeus, the midwife told Amber her daughter has a few Down syndrome markers.

"In that moment I was like, 'I knew it! I KNEW IT!' I wasn't going crazy! I knew something was different when I was pregnant, and then I immediately became a worker bee. I wanted to know everything they knew about babies with Down syndrome so I could best care for my daughter, Amadeus. We didn't care that she had Down syndrome because we were all obsessed with her and all her chromosomes!"

After a week stay in the hospital, Amadeus' Down Syndrome diagnosis was confirmed. And the Rojas family is excited about their newest addition.

"To us, she's like all the other babies we have had! She needs milk. She cries when she's wet or uncomfortable. She smiles when she sees us, and we love her fiercely! God gave us Amadeus for a reason. Our family was going a million different ways and Amadeus has brought us together. We are learning together about a whole community that we never knew anything about. But at the end of the day she IS our baby and we are her FAMILY! To us she is perfect. We don't see her diagnosis or her label — we see Amadeus Reign Rojas."
