This past weekend, we invited a family who has a son with Down syndrome, a beautiful little boy (David) born just one month before Sam, to our home for dinner. We enjoyed some homemade pizza, fresh veggies and the first watermelon of the season. They have four boys altogether, and the three older boys had a blast playing with our girls. They played board games, played on the swingset, picked eggs from the hen house and pet the bunnies. The whole family tried a ride on the 4-wheelers, and I think it's safe to say we all had a great time!

Believe it or not, 6,000 babies are born with Down syndrome each year in the U.S. That breaks down to over 16 babies a day! This family that we've discovered is actually quite large, and I'm excited to meet and get to know more of it's members!
