Welcome to Charlie's Up To, a blog about family, parenting boys, faith, living simply, Humboldt, and the unique way Down Syndrome plays a part in every aspect of our lives.
I am Kim, mama to three beautiful little boys. Charlie (5), Calvin (3), and Miles (4 months). Married to my best friend, Raymond, we raise our crew on the north coast of California, in beautiful Humboldt County.
Our five year old son, Charlie, has Down Syndrome. In many ways the first couple years of his life were about learning to adjust to a reality we had not counted on. A reality that included a baby with Down Syndrome. As we settled into our "new normal" we relied heavily on blogs of families who were living--and loving--their lives with their children who have Down Syndrome. Those inspiring parents were the impetus for this blog, which I created in August of 2007. My way of sharing with others the way Down Syndrome has both changed our lives forever, and made it richer, challenging, and beautiful.
Thank you so much for stopping in today to visit. You are encouraged to stay a while and brows posts in a number of subject areas, review our list of Down Syndrome Resources, leave your comments and impressions, or ask a question.
