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 Re: Where were you 7 years ago today?


I was at work when my mom emailed me, I immediatly tried to get on but the website was so flooded I couldn't get in. So turned up my tv radio and stood around with a bunch of coworkers listening in dismay.

We were then ushered into the lunch room and told to go home at that time the plane that would eventually crash in PA could not be located and being less than 40 minutes from DC they said go, get your families etc. So I left work and ran to Alex school, he was in elementary school at the time and the scene was utter chaos picking up your kids.

Do you know Alex still remembers the day down to every detail. He spoke about it this morning on his way to school.

I can't believe it has been 7 years.
