I am working on a new Down Syndrome resource directory that should encompass any and all resources in the US when I am done. I do plan to branch out to resources in other countries as well, but I gotta start somewhere! You can contribute to the directory yourself, or feel free to send me any resources you would like to see included (even if not US based). If you have a DS blog, I will gladly include it in the directory. I will be working on this for many months, if not years,so your input is appreciated. Perhaps I can help someone find the support they need, and you can be a part of that, too. Here's the link:

The Phone Call

Yesterday I got a call from the group home. Chelsea has been on the waiting list for about a year. They said they had an opening for her, but it was in a co-ed home. I turned it down. As badly as I want my life back, I couldn't accept the placement knowing she would be housed with grown men. I told them I would just wait for an opening at the all female home. Part of me wants there to be an opening tomorrow, part of me doesn't want there to ever be an opening. Sometimes I think I'm just crazy!
