Thanks for posting that. What a great story. His parents did a great job because they were going against the flow at that time. Seeing how well Austin has done is very encouraging because our kids have access to things he never had which gives them the opportunity to do all sorts of things not previously thought of for people with Down Syndrome. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Wow, I never would've even thought to make sure my girl went to school with her potential employers. I guess we all seem to move around so much these days that the chances of that happening are slim. But I guess it could still work because it would just mean sending Jirah to a regular school, even a private school knowing that the other kids there will probably be managers, business owners and the like. Boy I can't even imagine my 8yr old ever having a job and living on his own let alone Jirah! It seems so far away....
