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 okay, really silly question...


it helps augment it. They can program whatever words you want. They update Alex's reguarly to incorporate his studies. He really helps him alot. He loves it! It does talk for him, says the word. I'm not sure when all they use it though... probably all the time and he can use it when needed.

edited to add: they have all his classmates and teachers pictures programmed in as well.
