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.

We have big news!!

First, our Gifts book has been picked up by Woodbine House Publishing!! Whoo Hoo! So if you haven't ordered one yet, better get one quick as the book is leaving and won't be available again until Summer 2007. Dr. Sears' wife, Martha, is writing our forward. They also have a child with Down syndrome, Stephen.

Second, guess what Nash told me impromtu tonight? "My birthday is February 16". Yep, pronouns, correct date and all! He was tested on his birthday, address, and phone number at our teacher conference last month, and I knew we (or his teacher) hadn't worked on those yet. So I printed out his birthdate yesterday, we repeated it a couple of times, I sent it to school today, and VOILA! So proud of him!

Well better go. I planted over 400 spring bulbs today and my ol' back is feelin' the pain. HOT TUB TIME.
