Our daughter was born full term in 2010 with her fraternal twin brother. All of the prenatal tests came back normal. In the delivery room, the doctors asked me if I knew anything about Down Syndrome, and I was immediately caught off guard. The room seemed so quiet that I could hear a pin drop, and time appeared to be standing still. I felt as though I was unprepared for a special needs child, so I began researching Down Syndrome. I found that most of the research was outdated and archaic. Being that I am a can-do person, most of the research was depressing and not uplifting at all. That's when I stumbled on to the LuMind Foundation's website. The information posted there explained the abilities, strengths and positives of Down Syndrome. After I made it my mission to learn all about Down Syndrome, I felt I should help to raise awareness and funds for Down Syndrome research through the LuMind Foundation.
