My first blog!!
I am a stay at home mom with a 23 yr old daughter, who is in Thailand (why? i still don't know!)
and 13 yr old boy/girl twins who will be in 8th grade. Colleen has Down syndrome, and her arrival turned our lives upside down 13 years ago and continues to do so now. When she was born I couldn't find anyone else in my situation. There were support groups for twins, moms with Down syndrome kids and regular play groups. We formed a special kids and sibs play group that was great for the moms as well, but I never knew anyone with twins, one with Down syndrome. Then this week I went on line and found several! Most have younger kids, and one suggested I start a blog that might be helpful since I've "been there, done that". So ask me questions and I'll try to help. And I'll keep you updated on my upside down life.
