Re-Blog~Halloween Costumes and a Special Needs Child

This is a fun look back at some of the Halloween costumes the boys have worn over the years.  Last Friday, Nick (who has Down syndrome and Autism) went gangsta to the school Halloween dance.  Shockingly, he kept the hat and necklace on much longer than I anticipated.

I’ve been doing more re-blogs because we’ve picked up a bunch of new readers since launching the Facebook Page, “Down syndrome with a Slice of Autism.”  Plus it’s fun to go back and revisit some of these stories after two years.  That’s what is in my noggin this week.

Happy Halloween!
