Eli's diagnosis was a surprise at birth. We were in foreign land and there was a lot of uncertainty and fear. Through DSAGR, we were able to learn that the journey we had just begun wasn't really all that scary or foreign! Through resources and connections with others who have kids with ds, we were able to see the enormous potential our son has. We could relax and begin to truly enjoy the journey. We have been able to have many fun outings with friends on the same journey, participate in the Learning Program, get support in many ways, and even have the opportunity for Eli to get scholarships to do extracurricular activities that his medical bills don't currently allow us to do. Help DSAGR continue to support Eli and others with Down syndrome by donating to this fantastic organization.
