An uplifting combination: Ben and his family, and Josh Groban!

Tuesday, July 31, 2012 @ 10:55 AM

As I was sorting through my files I came across this video that was sent to us by a dear friend of ours at BOA.   So I popped it into my laptop and got goosebumps all over again watching this video.  As I look out my window enjoying the beautiful lazy days of summer it made me reflect on what is most important in our lives:  FAMILY!  Take a few minutes out of your day and enjoy the love of family and the beautiful voice of Josh Groban. 

Thank you Cherrill and Margaret for doing everything you do to support Ben and all the other wonderful children and families who have a person with Down syndrome in their lives.

Limited Time Offer: Down Syndrome Support and Resource Package

Tuesday, July 10, 2012 @ 11:57 AM

Limited Time Offer
Down Syndrome Support and Resource Package  

 

Occasionally we come across a book or resource that we feel strongly about sharing with new parents. Just Cate is such a resource. Just Cate opens in the delivery room with Noelle Alix, whose newborn daughter Cate is unexpectedly born with Down syndrome. Noelle’s childhood friend, Angela Martin, is inspired by her quiet faith to write Noelle a heartfelt note in a baby card. This note and this child spark a transformative 12-year journey of renewed faith and friendship. With humor and heart, the coauthor friends tell a dual tale of the angst and joys of raising a child with a disability, of the power of women friendship, and of Cate’s funny and poignant early years.!


We have combined this book with the award winning book Common Threads and 18-month developmental calendar.  In addition, keeping with our commitment to assist in all stages of your child's life, we are sharing a sneak preview of Cynthia Hutchison's new Curriculum Modification Handbook due out in the fall—FREE!  Since this packet is for new parents, you will see that the selection is for early elementary school.  For new parents, the concern over how life might look for their child is huge at this time.  This chapter of the Curriculum Modification Handbook should help alleviate much of that concern!

This comprehensive support and resource package for new and expectant parents and family members is a must have.  Great for support groups too.

Now for a limited time; Just $35   A 40% savings if purchased separately.
