    This is a great story of how parents can made the best of a tough challenge, and how a wonderful bunch of neighbors and friends adapt to help a Down Syndrome fellow be an active participant. The Down Syndrome folks I've known have added much to their neighborhood and community.

    What a good story of charity and compassion. We have a daughter who is likewise blessed with downs. I hope others will be as kind and gentle with her as she particpates with others.

    Love to see what is right in our world at times and not always what is wrong.

    Congrats to this team and all the parents. Thanks for sharing

    Great story. Unbelievable family. What are the odds of having two Down syndrome children in the same family? Thanks for sharing them with the community and thanks to KSL broadening that generosity.
