Glimpse of the future?

I don't live in St. Louis. I used to, and I hope to again someday. But I do receive email newsletters and such from the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis as a resource and to familiarize with what they have going on. Today I got the Friday Blast email, and it had a note about St. Louis Life. St. Louis Life is a new residential facility and program for young adults (18 -30) with developmental disabilities in O'Fallon, MO. I just finished looking through their website and watching the video tour of the site. It's beautiful! What an awesome place and program!

I have no earthly idea or way to know where we will be, where Braska will want to be, or what will be happening in our lives when Braska gets to this stage in her life, but I just love that something like this is out there, providing a great place for people to spread their wings a little. That's encouraging to me. Check it out.

ALSO, in the info from DSAGSL was a link to some pics from their Young Moms Luncheon. It so so so makes me want to get to be in that club. A bunch of young moms all with young kids with DS chatting about what's up? It's like blogging in person...wait, maybe I should think about this. Anyway, here's the link to their pics including some adorable little kiddos. I would love for Braska to get to have so many little buddies.


  1. Pretty neat place. I think I know where Winghaven is. Nice area.

    Thanks for the link!

  2. Very cool. This is great that there are place like this to meet needs of people. Andrea

  3. If you could find a young moms group in your area, I would reccomend it. That is my biggest regret right now. Rylie has a few friends and tons of cousins,but she doesn't have any friends w/ DS.-But I am working on that now!I'm off to check out that website now.
