Number Four - Stacie

This is my daughter, Anastasia, Stacie to everyone. She is 19 and has Down's Syndrome. She was born in Athens, Greece, and we went through a very rocky time as the Greek doctors were very ignorant about it all and offered us some unimaginable choices. Luckily, we did not take them and although my ex husband fell by the wayside when she was five, I never regret having her. She is a little darling! She has been through mainstream schooling until the age of 15, had a few years at a special unit (not such a good choice!) and is off to technical college in September. Go Stacie!
