Beautiful tribute to Kara! I am in J-ville also. I work at Wolfson and I always tell people that kids with Down's are some of the sweetest and cutest kids out there. They are just so huggable.

I was bawling throughout both of the videos. They are BEAUTIFUL and so is Kara. As an occupational therapist, I work with many children who have Down's Syndrome in the schools. I have to say that they are some of the greatest people that I have met and they bring so much joy to their friends, family and teachers. Thank you so much for sharing your story and the amazing videos.

What a beautiful video. I'm bawling because it was so moving. Thank you so much for helping to spread the message that people with disabilities have a life worth living too. I'm a lifeskills teacher (I have 4 students with down syndrome in my class!) and have to argue daily for the value of the education my students receive. I'm so glad you were blessed with a healthy little girl, and that she was blessed to have you as her mommy.

Monica,
Thank you for posting that inspirational vidoe, it's beautiful! I'm going to share it with my other "mom's support group" who happens to have a lot of special needs children on there as well. I know they will love it. I hope you don't mind.
Thanks again it was great.
OH, and I forgot to mention...do you live in Jacksonville?? We live in Jacksonville! :D

I have learned more from Kara in the short time that she has been us, than I ever did in any educational classroom!!!

Again, many thanks to each of you who replied and to those who took the time to view her video montage!!
