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.

A little prayer if you could

A young gal from our local DSI group, Christina, who has a little guy named Blake, 9 months old, was just informed that Blake has leukemia. The type isn't known yet, or that I know of anyway.

A little prayer for Blake and strength for her? Blake was prenatally diagnosed and she is such a wonderful person. Blake is a cutie too.

UPDATE: Blake is having bone marrow tested today to see what kind of leukemia he has. His daddy is in Iraq and they are trying to get him home on emergency medical leave.

If you would be so kind to leave Blake and Christina a note, here is his page
