Happy home, two girls, two boys, one with an extra special chromosome. Loving life. And being gentle.
Question: Were athletics and getting involved in the special olympics his idea or yours?I ask out of curiosity. My step-daughter is 10 with down syndrome and I've only been her mom for a year. I have lots to learn!
Hi Jess. Congratulations on your new family!It was me and my husband who originally wanted our son to get involved with Special Olympics. But after the first practice, he was hooked. And so were we!!! What a great organization. And besides our son learning new skills and making new friends, it has been such a fantastic experience for both my husband and me. We had tried Little League and karate when our son was younger, with his brother. Davey had fun, but we could tell we were missing something for him. WE decided to see if Special Olympics was a better fit. It was perfect.I would recommend you give one of the sports a try. Soccer starts usually in August or September. Keep me posted on how it goes!Be gentle.
