Hello, I’m Denise aka LuckyMama. I’ve been married for 6.5 years, and we have 3 beautiful boys. Our oldest, Robert, is 5.5 years old. He’s how we became a part of the Lucky Few Crew – you see, he has Down Syndrome. Robert has 2 younger brothers – Sullivan (2 this month) and Alistair (6 months old).
In the Down Syndrome Community, family members of the person with Down Syndrome refer to themselves as The Lucky Few. It began with Heather Avis, author of the book The Lucky Few, who said that there were few people who had someone with Down Syndrome in their lives, and that those who did were the lucky ones. You can learn all about Heather, her incredible story, and her journey to making the world more inclusive here: https://www.heatheravis.com/
So here we are, a family who is overjoyed to be a part of the Lucky Few. But our family doesn’t begin and end with Down Syndrome. It is just one part of who we are. Our younger two boys are equally full of love and laughter, and here is a space where we can share the trials and triumphs that come along with raising extraordinary children.
Thanks for joining me on this journey,
