For many of us, adoption of kids with Down syndrome can seem daunting but did you know that hundreds of families welcome children with the condition into their homes every year? Down syndrome is a genetic variation that causes a delay in physical, intellectual, and language development among those with the condition.

Adoption of children with Down syndrome has the power to turn their lives around as new parents can give them quality care and attention to ensure they have a shot at a better life.
