When I started posting about Joey having down syndrome, I was writing so my family and friends back in Ohio (Hey guys!!!) could keep up to date on what was going on with us. I never imagined that I would find an online community of parents or should I say, have the community find me. I enjoy my daily routine of reading all of my fellow T-21 mom's blogs. Writing on here daily has almost become a job for me. Since I'm a stay at home mom, besides taking care of Joey, cooking and cleaning, I really have nothing else to do, but write in my blog. I've also been trying to read at least one or two new T-21 blogs a day, and look for news articles pertaining to Down syndrome. If you are a parent that I haven't met online yet that is reading this, please introduce yourself! I love meeting new parents, T-21 or not!!!

Hello! I recently found your blog and have enjoyed it. I have been reading blogs for awhile now so I thought I would start one of my own. I too am a mom of a beautiful, T-21, miracle baby girl Thea-Ann 06-16-06. treasuresandsnares.spaces.live.com

You know we are loving your site! I agree with you, when I was on vacation I missed reading all the daily DS blogs, I felt like I was missing out on so much of the kids development. I feel so blessed that I have "met" all amazing families, it makes it so much more fun and easy to go through the days!

It is amazing what the internet can do for us - an instant "community" at our fingertips! I have enjoyed getting to "meet" and know so many wonderful people through their blogs...including you and Joey! :)

Thanks for the latest articles! I only wish in the first one they didn't have to describe the couple as "Down's couple" can't they just be a couple first?! Sigh...

I too set up a blog so Shaylee's family and friends could catch up with what she's doing. But it has "introduced" me to lots of other families. It's so neat to read about other people's lives. I truly enjoy bloging and try to post as often as i can.
