I have been praying for direction and I think I found it on Lisa's (Living in the Light) blog post. I think I have found a start in Down Syndrome Achieves. Lisa did a wonderful job introducing DSA.
I have often thought about research surrounding Down syndrome. The simple fact of the matter is I do not know enough and I owe it to my son to learn and be his advocate. He needs a voice. I am not interested in changing him. I am interested in supporting his health, his intellect, his potential. In order for that to happen, there needs to be a lot (A LOT!) more research conducted. There needs to be funding and in order for either to happen this needs to be a priority. Consider supporting Down Syndrome Achieves.
I will be highlighting some other research organizations in future posts. I hope to learn a lot on this journey...and become a contributing member of each.

Consider supporting Calvin and the more than 300,000 people in the US who have Down syndrome.
