- Cason, 8 months
"This is a picture of my son Cason, right around 8 or 9 months of age, enjoying some Cheetos. He is now almost 4 years old and the light of our lives! He changed the way we view the world (for the better, of course!) as well as how we live our lives. Cason means the world to us and we couldn't feel more blessed to be his parents." --Peggy, mom
- Alex, 15 months
"Alex is an amazing little guy with so many abilities. We found out about his diagnosis when I was about 20 weeks pregnant. We would not change a thing." --Andrea, mom
- Madee, 3
Fort Worth, TX
"This is my beautiful baby girl Madee. Thanks for posting all the pictures of these little blessings! They bring pure joy to the world!" --Randi, mom
- Caleb, 22 months
"Caleb is such a blessing to our family and the absolute joy of our lives. He is surprising us at every turn - first, with his diagnosis at birth, but lately by walking all over, learning new signs (more than 40 total now), and saying "uh-oh" after he throws his dinner on the floor. He wakes up smiling and goes to bed smiling. We couldn't have asked for a better kid." --Robin, mom
- Braden, 2 1/2
"Our son Dorsey was born 9 weeks early and has Down Syndrome. He is an inspiration to us and although we haven't been able to bring him home yet we look forward to each and every day we spend together." --Stacy, mom
- Evie, 10 months

- Hannah, 5 months
"Hannah has been such a blessing in our lives. She has truly touched the lives of so many people and has shown that everyone is unique in their own way. Hannah is our first born and we have never been more grateful to have her in our lives. She is truly an amazing gift that has been given to us. We thank the Lord every day for blessing us with such a beautiful daughter!" --Marisha, mom
- Lucy, 2 1/2
"I am the proud mom of Lucy Kay, who was born with Down Syndrome. She is our youngest child and a joy to everyone she meets. She attends regular preschool, takes ballet and loves to play with her brother and sister. To know her is definitely to love her!" --Jill, mom
- Chloe, 9 months
"Here is a photo of my daughter, Chloe, in the trick or treat candy bowl! She just turned 9 months old and is doing so well after a rough start. She is the best thing that could have ever happened to my family!" --Michelle, mom
- Milo, 9 months
"Here is one of my favorite photos of my precious gift, Brianna, who happens to have Down Syndrome. Thank you for sharing our Joy with the world!" --Sherilyn, mom
- Anna, 6 months
"We are pleased to introduce to you / Anna Kathleen. / She surprised us three weeks early / On April 15.
A good and perfect gift from / God up above, / We welcome her into our lives with / Much joy and endless love.
Fearfully and wonderfully made / By our God in heaven, / Instead of 46 chromosomes, / He gave her 47.
Known as Downs Syndrome, / Or Trisomy 21, / The blessings Anna will bring us / Have only just begun.
We share this news with you / Not out of sadness or despair, / But so you will know, and so you can pray, / And because we know you care.
Anna, though special, is like any / Little girl / Just needing a little extra help / To make it in this world.
We are tickled pink to have Anna, / And can't wait to watch her grow. / We will watch with amazement at / The Places She Will Go!" --Lori, mom
