This Down syndrome Community......

"Of people in this country has been tremendous!"

Those are a few of the last words on this video clip of Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers on an interview on CNN.

I couldn't agree more........not only is her son going to bring her more Joy that she could ever imagine, he will broaden her heart and soul and mind.

I wish I could bottle up all the gifts that I have been given by having Emma Sage in my life. She has enriched our life in more ways than I could ever count or imagine. She has made me fully human and I am ever so thankful!

But the greatest gift is being a part of this 'Down syndrome Community'.......of people whose lives have been touched by someone with Down syndrome.....it is a community that's tapestry is rich and colorful....warm and inviting.

This Saturday we are going to a conference held at Princeton University.........it will be a visual sign of the power that T21 has on the lives of people that it touches....it is such a powerful and positive spirit.
