Stephen’s Story

by DRVC Website

I was happy to write: “A Special Family: Shaped by Down Syndrome, Grief and Grace.”  It has been published in For Your Marriage, an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.  It includes the story of our son, Stephen, who died suddenly of a brain aneurism when he was eight years old.  His smiling face appears in the video, What to Expect When You’re Expecting A Baby with Down Syndrome, but not his story.  In my mind, his short life is what makes us a special family.  Why not take a moment to read the article?  Let me know if you agree!
