It has been almost three years since my grandson Marty was born in August of 2009. An incredibly beautiful baby who happened to have an extra copy of chromosome 21. Since his birth I have looked for resources to learn more about Down Syndrome. I have found very few. If I could share what I learn as Marty grows, maybe I could help another grandmother. So here starts the effort that has been nagging me for years, identify what I learn, describe the challenges and incredible insights, and most importantly share the boy who has captured my heart.
