Sarah & Grant De Jong, one of our loving families ready to adopt a baby with Down Syndrome, would love to share a special video message with you!

Cheyenne has been the greatest blessing we could have asked for. We had no idea how deep the blessing of being her parents was going to be, and how impactful it was going to be on our lives and hearts. Down Syndrome is not a burden; it's a blessing.
