Derek recently turned 4 and is so very excited to be one of the 2019 Nothing Down Ambassadors! We had a prenatal diagnosis when I was about 15 weeks pregnant and we decided that we weren’t going to tell anyone because we didn’t want anyone feeling bad for us! It was the best decision for us and right then we knew that there was Nothing Down about Down syndrome!.
Derek is the absolute light of everyone’s lives! He can make you smile and laugh just by looking at you. He will turn your day around with his big beautiful smile. He absolutely LOVES riding the bus everyday and loves school! School has been so amazing this past year and Derek keeps showing us all that he can learn just like his typical peers!
We are so so proud of our boy and we can’t wait to keep showing the world that there is Nothing Down about Derek and all of his amazing friends!
