About Special Miracles
The last thing I thought about when I was expecting is special needs. The last thing I accepted after my youngest was born is that he had Down syndrome.
In the months that followed, the last thing I would do is accept the bleak outlook that he had been so innocently born into. I rejected the medical literature that prepared me for a lifetime of endless suffering and heartache, and I searched high and low for the testimonials; the happy endings; and the inspiring true stories of other parents who had been down this same road.
In 2013 I founded the community platform known as Special Miracles. After Colton was born I made a resolution to myself and to him; that I would become his strongest advocate, and his devoted ally.
I found a flood of dark and unsympathetic statistics and misconstrued information, but very little in the way of positive approaches and the reassurance that life with Down syndrome can be just as joyful as without it.
Today Special Miracles is the largest online social media platform promoting Down syndrome awareness one product at a time.
