Ready for lots of fun???

It’s time for us to get going again!  We’ve got some GREAT things planned for this coming school year. 

September 10 is Parents’ Night Out for good fellowship, food, and fun!  We’ll have poker for those who like to be a little competitive (no $$ needed!) and who knows what else might crop up!  Come as a couple, come with a friend, or come by yourself.  We’ll be sure everyone has a great time!  Please RSVP to Adrienne asap.

October 16 is our Family Picnic at the City Centre Park and Pavillion in St. Peters.  More details soon, but plan to bring the whole family!  RSVP info will be around soon on this one.

PLAYDATES!!!  We have been generously given the opportunity to have several playdates scheduled at the Calvary Church indoor playground.  It is a SUPER place for kids from little tiny tots to the bigger kids who want to run, climb, and jump in their area!  Dates will be available soon!

And there will be more family events to share about soon.  Along with meetings that present topics that will be helpful as well. 

So get ready! It’s going to be a great year with StC!

World Down Syndrome Day 2011

For 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, unique to Down syndrome.

World Down Syndrome Day.


Take the chance to tell someone a wonderful thing about someone you know with DS. Or share with someone how your views have changed now that you know and love someone with DS.

Today, make a decision to be intentional about making others aware that a diagnosis of DS does not have to be met with utter despair, it doesn’t have to be a death sentence, and it is not a reason to take an unborn child’s life.

Just tell someone.

The IDSC for Life has put together a really nice video of some of our little beauties… I have my favorite in there, and a few who follow close behind her. Maybe posting a link to this in your Facebook status or on your blog or Twitter would be a great awareness opportunity.

Important meeting this Sunday!

If you haven’t RSVP’d for our meeting this Sunday afternoon, please do so right away.  It’s going to be a great one.

The Met Life Center for Special Needs Planning will be presenting a FREE seminar on Feb 27 at 4pm at Family Therapy Solutions.  Family Therapy is located @ 2120 Bryan Valley Commercial Drive (Bryan Rd in center where Radical Resale is) in O Fallon, MO.

This will focus on two main elements. 

~~Why having a special needs trust is important to ensure that your child will receive the appropriate benefits from all available resources as they move through the childhood and adult years.

~~How the process of setting up a special needs trust works.

This presentation will be given by J. Todd Gentry, from the Met Life Center for Special Needs Planning in Chesterfield.  He also serves on the DSAGSL board of directors.  The meeting will be casual with plenty of interaction for questions and answers, as well as information on the legal side of the trust.

We have several families who have attended this seminar before and have spoken highly of it.  Some are currently in process of setting up their trusts through Todd and the Met Life office.

This is VERY valuable information, so we highly encourage you to make a point to come.  It is important to have all the information about how to best plan for your child's future care.

We hope to see you there!!
