Looky what I got

These things arrived in the mail today from Chrystal. I'm so touched!
The bracelet says "Down Syndrome Awareness" and when Kevin saw it, he asked if he could wear it. I asked him if he planned on wearing it to school, and he said "Yes." I asked him what he would say if anyone asked him about it and he very matter of factly said, "I'll tell them I'm wearing it because my brother has Down syndrome." I really love how it's no big deal to him.

Aw, you laid it all out so pretty!

Keep in mind that the DVD is what it is. You may know everything in there, but confirmation can be nice too.

I have that video and I watched it before Syd was born. I CRIED and CRIED. Not because it was awful or sad, it was just very touching. My Best freind bought it for me.

What a sweet boy Kevin is!

Kevin is smart, loyal, protective, loving/warm/sensitive/aware/caring. What a kid!! I love him so much.
