One of them being that we've connected with the most wonderful people. Parents whom we may have never met if it weren't for our common bond - Down syndrome.
We have become good friends with Dylan's buddy Aaron.
With his great pal Josh.
And with Kayden, from The Kauff Krew, who was in town visiting, all the way from Texas!
I think Dylan was especially excited about seeing her in person!
I have recently learned more about The Parents' First Call Program through Boston Children's Hospital. This group consists of 40 trained parent volunteers who reach out to families who have, either prenatally or postnatally, received an unexpected diagnosis of Down syndrome. I will be attending the training session in Septemeber and will hopefully be selected to the program. I am really looking forward to reaching out to others, just as people have reached out to me.
Thank you Dylan, for being you. My life is richer, my heart fuller.
All because of you.
