Down syndrome awareness ... and beyond (6)

A few words from and about siblings ...

Ellen Stumbo, Finding Beauty in My Brokenness, 14th October 2014
Today I have the great pleasure and honor to share with you a guest post by my oldest daughter (at eight years old). It is Down syndrome awareness month, and she’s talking about what it’s like for her to have a sister with Down syndrome. I’m telling you, it’s a great post ...

NSW in aquatics at the Special Olympics National Games in
Melbourne! Good luck Karley. Thank you for the photo.
