My name is Kathy and our son, Travis, has Angelman Syndrome. He is going to be 25 years old in April. My husband and I have been married 34 years and have 5 children. Doug, our oldest son, is 33 and has Down Syndrome. In between we have a 30 year old daughter who has her Doctorate degree in Occupational Therapy from Washington University. A 29 year old son who works for IBM as an architectural engineer and our 28 year old daughter who is an Early Childhood teacher. We are the very proud grandparents of 8 grandchildren! 5 boys and 3 girls.

Thank you Kathy for joining our group. I look forward to your input and advice for us all. Especially since your angel is older and most of ours are still preschool age.
