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.

Happy 1st Birthday Seger!

our boy is one year today! Nash sang his heart out to Grandma yesterday as it was her birthday, and today is Seger's one year birthday, to which he belted out a wonderful tune.

Then Seger got to open his present after we returned from our neighborhood Fall Party....

So can we all sing together?

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR SEGER...BOB
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUUUUUUUUU

love you baby boy!

And on a parent note, I have to say how much our Seger means to our family. We lost Rudy before our move and Nash's beginnings into the elementary school years. Being an only child, and one with special needs, we knew that Nash needed a sibling, and believe me we tried for years for one biological sibling. It wasn't meant to be. So Seger has been a blessing for our family. While Nash has family close by, everyone is so busy with their lives or otherwise, so Nash sees them on a rare occasion. So Seger is there for Nash, he never judges Nash, and greets him morning, day and night. Seger protects Nash and yet also encourages him by showing him he will always be there; no matter what.

Seger is the best family member/sibling Nash could have.
