    1. You're very welcome. When Presley was born, I found it comforting to know what a large DS family there was out there and found these names.

  2. The new coach for the Washington Capitals has a child with Down Syndrome. :)

  3. Country duo Joey & Rory have a baby girl who is a few months old with DS. Her name is Indiana. They have been really open about their new journey. This is Joey's first baby and Rory has others from his previous relationship(s).
