Lauren and I are home from NTSAD’s annual family conference. It was a whirl-wind weekend! Lauren had a blast. My calm, reserved child was bouncing off the walls! I think she talked to anyone who would listen! She especially enjoyed saying ‘hola’ to the families from Cuba and Guatemala.

I have a million and one things to do but will write more about our trip later.

Here is a picture of Lauren and me with Marlin and Mario. Marlin and Mario are a wonderful couple from Guatemala. We met them at last year’s conference. I was so excited they came this year too. Marlin and Mario lost both of their sons to Tay Sachs. When they met Carmen last year, Marlin cried.
