My daughter is growing up right before my eyes. She’s becoming more independent despite her physical limitations. She was born with Down syndrome and has physical and developmental delays.

The Mart King

Driving my 3yr old to school the other morning, milliseconds back from winter vacation, she yelled, “Mom, when is my next school break?” Girl, you are 3! What type of break could you possibly need? I’ve never come across a stressed out “Line Leader” or perused the self-help isle of the book store for  “The […]
