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.

Wow! I am SO impressed! He is reading as well as my daughter who does not have T21 and is finishing first grade. His speech is fabulous! Nash is definitely my role model and a great role model for Joe.

That was fantastic. WTG, Nash! And the way he tossed the book at the end of the video, you can just tell that he was proud of himself...kind of like he was saying, "Yep, I did it!"

Great reading Nash, I'm sure the principal will be pleased to hear and see you. Your enthusiasm and pleasure in the book are evident. Keep up the prractice!

Hi. Thanks for posting on our blog. We go to the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, VT. My father gave a week time share to my mom about 20 years ago, and we go every year for the week of mother's day.

It is a beautiful spot with lots of outdoor activities for kids.

I've been watching Nash grow for a couple of years, he is amazing.

YAH Nash!!!! That is fantastic reading!!!!!
Jan, I see the out of the box reading program on your blog, did you use that with Nash ? We are in the middle of it with Nathaniel and his words are coming but not clear ( could be the trach issue that is hampering it ) How did you like the program?
