i did it

The lovely and amazing Jennifer (Mom to Diego, Mateo and Joaquin) started a hugely successful "i did it" campaign. Through this campaign, parents of children with Down syndrome across the country have purchased the t-shirts above to celebrate their children's achievements. In return, Jennifer is using the proceeds from the sale of t-shirts to purchase copies of Gifts 2 which she is distributing to local hospitals, genetic counselor's offices and pediatrician's offices. What a fantastic idea - combining the celebration of our children with helping new and expectant parents. Thank you, Jennifer.
I think Brennan knew this t-shirt was coming and wanted to do something really big for the occasion....so, after months of being totally resistant to putting pressure on his feet - he started pulling himself up to stand this week. We are so proud!
