Hope the photo works, this is our little angel Kacie who is now 11 weeks old and who happens to have DS. Her big Bro Owen absolutely adores her and will not leave her alone wanting to play wit her all day and wont sleep at night unless she is in her cot next to his bed. My name is Darren and my wife is Nicola and completing our family is Owen's dog Freddy and our cat Poppy.
Hope to get to know lots of people on here.
Thanks

Welcome! Your kids are adorable. That is so sweet that your little guy is already so attached to his sister. Kids are amazing, aren't they?

Your kids are beautiful. If you ever find yourself sad or frustrated about the ds.. just look at how much Owen loves and adores Kacie. It will help on those tough days. I'm glad you found us and I'm sure you will find the support, information and smiles you need here!!!!! Very Happy

hello Nicola, thanks for welcome, Middlebrough is about 1hour away from us but have been there many a time to watch football when my team played there.
Absolutely lovely pics of your family by the way, hope to chat more and get to know you more.

Hello and welcome from another Brit on this board! The photo really takes me back 3 years when my little boy (only 19 months at the time) looked lovingly at his little baby sister! Not so loving all the time now! But totally normal in their relationship which is fine.

We are based in Coventry in the Midlands - have you managed to get in touch with any support groups locally yet?

Your family look adorable and little Kacie looks very sweet

Sarah
