One year ago - On December 16th, 2010 my daughter Bethany was born into this world. To our surprise, she arrived with "something extra" that our family was not expecting. That something extra was attached to her DNA, and most of us know it as - Down Syndrome. This is my birthday gift to her - as I truly feel like my family "won the lottery" - because of her.

However, in the first few days and weeks after she arrived, we were angry, confused and concerned.

My hope is to shed some light on this path for someone who recently might have been given similar news. More than 60% of us were given this diagnosis completely unexpectedly or even at birth.

There are 400,000 other people living with Down Syndrome across the United States. As we noted in this video, they are making a huge impression on their families. Welcome to this wonderful community of caring and understanding people.

Let me know if I can help you or someone you know begin their trip "Down" this road.
