Dear Mrs. Sander:

I have neither a child nor a relative with Down syndrome, yet I make sure to buy each issue of Down Syndrome Amongst Us and I leave it around the house. I want my children to read your exceptional publication and develop a positive attitude toward special children and individuals with disabilities. Through your magazine, my children come to see the uniqueness of these children.

Although all of my children are B"H healthy now, one of them had cancer at a younger age. The words of support and the positive outlook expressed in your articles are easily transferable to any challenge one may encounter in life. Everyone can benefit from experiencing the upbeat attitude, sense of humor, and recognition of the good in our lives that so clearly emanate from the pages of DSAU.

May you have continued success. Thank you.
