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.

for Dad on your 80th birthday....miss you!

My Dad passed away about a week after Nash's first birthday on 2/20/02. Nash still talks about "Chuck Chuck" like he knew him... we show the scarce videos we have, and pictures. But sometimes Nash just talks like Grandpa Chuck Chuck is here.... hmmmmmmm

today Dad would be 80. I know if he would be here he and Nash would be Wendy's Frosty pals, hanging out at auctions, and just being pissy with each other, as they both loved to be!

Miss you Dad.....Happy 80th birthday!
