[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]People with Down syndrome are born with one extra 21st chromosome. A single chromosome is one to two micrometers long. How small is that? A typical human hair is about 80 micrometers in diameter.

But that extra 21st chromosome can mysteriously generate so much love, optimism and acceptance that it transforms families. In fact, some people call it the Love Chromosome.

In an episode of our Emmy®-winning TV program Facing Life Head-On, two families described the unexpected joy they discovered in their journey with Down syndrome.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”8px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Drew Anderson’s family share how he has enriched their lives.[/vc_column_text][TS-VCSC-Youtube seperator_1=”” content_youtube=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IDVGh97ExeQ” lightbox_play=”true” content_lightbox=”false” seperator_4=””][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Toni Alten-Crowe’s parents learned that life is best lived full up.[/vc_column_text][TS-VCSC-Youtube seperator_1=”” content_youtube=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUBY8lp0Y0c” content_lightbox=”false” seperator_4=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”48px”][vc_column_text]FLHO517_CROP
