Gifts : Mothers Reflect on How Children with Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives

The Gifts Outreach program provides complimentary copies of Gifts to organizations which serve parents facing a new diagnosis of Down syndrome for their child, either prenatally or postnatally. We believe that the stories in the book provide a vital companionship and support for such parents.

It's Racing Time in Indy!

And we started it off with a Little 500 bike race at school! Nash did GREAT! Here are some pics

Welcome all Race Fans!
The teachers went all out, cake too!
Last minute race instructions
The LineUp
Hi Mom!!
The Race is On!
Nash is concentrating and doing great! No wrecks (by him anyway!)

Edible race cars, two made by Nash, and eaten by Nash!
A festive room!
The winners circle complete with chocolate milk!
Then the Awards!
Nash loves his medal!

And here is Nash in the race- He is on the Schwinn Roadster, the lowrider, and is doing a great job avoiding all the fast "cars" at the end of the race....so proud of him as he had little desire, he COULD ride it but didn't seem to enjoy it at all, to ride his bike (or the other one at home, with training wheels) much before this race then the other kids showed him how they all rode their bikes and all has changed. Another great example how inclusion works!
