We are a group of friends who have come together because we share the common bond of caring for someone who has Trisomy 21. We are here to share therapy tips, medical issues, laughs, accomplishments and yes, even frustrations. We embrace what Trisomy 21 has brought into our lives. We feel that it has taught us to appreciate the true meaning of life. We count our children as blessings! We will fiercely protect them and fight for their lives to be valued just as all other peoples' are. We share our pictures, our stories and our hearts here not only to provide friendship and support for each other, but also in the hopes that others will open their minds and their hearts to our unique children and, in turn, make a better world for everyone.

Response to In need of some advice


when he was about the same age...and he'd be giggling the entire time he was running. And we couldn't figure out how to get him to stop. I just always had to keep him in the stroller. This last year, since he's turned 5, he's like a different little boy. I can let him walk to the car from the front door alone (although I'm ready to grab him, if I need to) and he can walk alone in the grocery store, not even holding my hand. Now, if I yell "stop", he will, too, which is a big milestone for him. Of course, I just jinxed us, and now he'll become a runner again!
