A few months ago, I was blessed with meeting families from all over the island who also have a young child with DS. We are planning on getting together every 1-2 mths, and we just happen to be getting together this coming Monday. I will cherish these playdates, as I have yet to meet any moms on my side of the island that I can relate to in this unique way. This is another reason why I feel so fortunate to have found other moms (and dads) who are inspired to blog, I can't even begin to explain how much support I have found within the blog world. If I was speaking to a parent who had just been given a diagnosis of DS, one of the most important things I would tell them is to "check out the blogs!". These kids are remarkable, go look and see for yourself!
The picture above is from our first get together. It was taken at the end of our picnic, the kids are exhausted from all the fun. In the group picture, Sylas looks like he is nursing through my dress, poor guy.
