Down Syndrome Awareness: Kai

Down syndrome Awareness Month : Payton

Join us in October for Down Syndrome Awareness Month as families from our DSDN Birth support group share,
what they wish others knew about their child with Down syndrome.

We are the Reeds. This guy here is Kai! As with most families, Down syndrome was not what we expected when we found out about our little guy.

He is generally cheery and smiles at all. Kai’s love is good. He is the Boss and the sassiest of us all. Kai brings light on days that we struggle to find it.

Down syndrome has no affect on how much love we give, nor how much love we receive.

There isn’t much of anything we’d change about our guy, other than the couple of surgeries he’s had to have. Kai is the best and most amazing human being! We are incredibly happy to be blessed with him.

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. – James 1:27 NIV
