In the last few weeks reading what others say about Down Syndrome has been very informative. Seeing how much improvement has been made concerning DS makes me realize how much of a difference, caring and thinking folks can make, in the lives of who they focus on.
Inspiring, Motivating and Encouraging folks with Down Syndrome is important, but that’s the same with anyone.

My daughter Amy told me once, long ago, that even if I only help one person, what I do will be worth it.
My son Jack Jr. recently said we should all aspire to figure out who and what we are and go to that place.
