Lovely.

Read your last post. Not looking forward to the inevitable battles. Keep leading the way, so I can follow your lead.

I have learned so much about Down's Syndrome from you! And so much about the human spirit from Zoey (and you). I'm glad that today is a day of recognition of all those amazing people who teach us so much!

Hugs!

I'm sorry that I missed Down Syndrome Day but a happy, inspired one all the same! Two girls with Down Syndrome light up my daughter's life every single day in her special education class --
