Common Connection

Sometimes, being a parent to a child who isn’t neurotypical is lonely.

Sometimes, you can feel isolated in your thoughts and emotions.

That’s not always the case.

Having a child with Down syndrome is a ticket into one of the most incredible and supportive communities.

It’s unbelievable how that extra chromosome is able to connect families around the globe.

When we have questions about what to expect after a diagnosis, this community is there.

When we wonder what resources might be available for our kids, this community is there.

When we feel overwhelmed, and just need SOMEONE who understands, this community is there.

We are a global community.

We are family.

We truly are The Lucky Few.
