"Chase is a happy, energetic boy who captures the attention of everyone around him, especially his older brothers and sister. Chase is the youngest of our four children and happens to have Down syndrome among his other outstanding qualities. Down syndrome certainly does not have Chase. Chase did have to have heart surgery at six months of age to correct an AV canal defect. Chase remained healthy prior to the surgery and has remained healthy despite the gloomy statistics and information given to us as to what to expect from a child with Down syndrome. Chase is amazing and we are so blessed to have him in our lives!" -- Phyllis, mom
"He is everything to us, and the greast surprise of our lives. We had no idea about his genetic disorder, but are so happy with him. He is the most perceptive, social, sensitive and happy child, he surprises us with his accomplishments daily. Our lives would be empty without him. He has taught us sooooo much about tolerance, patience and love."
