THE STORY:

Taegon is the youngest of 5 children, born on 6/6/12 to Steve and Margo Kim. At birth a heart defect was detected, Taegon went into heart failure on August 21st at 10 weeks old, he had open heart surgery on August 29th at CNMC in Washington, DC.
When Taegon was 5 months old he was brought to a development pediatrician to address his parents' concerns about not meeting his milestones, a karotype test confirmed that Taegon has Trisomy 21. Although his parents were shocked and saddened by the diagnosis, it answered a lot of their questions and put them on the right path to get Taegon all the help he and his family needed. The Down Syndrome Network of Montgomery County has been instrumental in putting us in touch with all the resources available to us, we would literally be lost without them! We know we are not alone on this journey and that TAEGON WILL THRIVE thanks to them!
Your support is greatly appreciated!

A close friend of mine has a child with Down Syndrome and I've witnessed him grow into such a wonderful boy. He has certainly thrived over the past 5 years and so will Taegon! 4 years ago
