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 Hit with remnants of Ike


I feel your pain. We got hit hard this morning, but power stayed on, thankfully. My husband checked his cell phone around 6:00 tonight and found out his shop & office are flooded. He went in to work to help and called me about 30 minutes ago. He said a levee had broken near the shop and the water was 9 inches above their desks. He works at a tire retail/wholesaler with a recap plant. They said tires were just floating away. They've lost inventory. And I can't imagine what's happened with their computers.

Sounds like a mess.

... I posted a video on Shawen's blog (not great one) of the storm from my back door this morning. It's amazing how strong it still was 900 miles from Galveston!
