We are a family with six children, the oldest 3 are biological and the youngest 3 are adopted. We have a 12 son who was adopted domestically at birth, he has ADHD, our 11 yo dtr. was adopted from Vietnam 12/08, she has Down Syndrome, and our 3 yo son was adopted from Guatemala 11/07, he also has Down Syndrome. Bob is retired from the US Navy and I am a SAHM retired from nursing. We homeschool our youngest 3, the 3 oldest are grown. We would love to consider adopting another child with DS.
