My Amazing Daughter!
My Amazing Daughter!

My daughter Kaylee is four years old and she has Down syndrome. She started pre-k this year. I was so worried about all the what-ifs - like if would she make friends. Like always, she has amazed me. After only a couple of days she is greeted every morning by a group of friends. They gather around her to play and laugh. She is also doing amazingly well with her class work. I am so proud of her and I thank God every day.

Wonderful!! I am so happy to know Kaylee's story and being a father of a boy same age as Kaylee with down syndrome, I hope my son also will have the same courage in his life. Looking forward to hearing from you more about Kaylee.
