    With Featured Guest:   Shandra Lumsden-Umazar, Proud parent of a college graduate with Down Syndrome

    "It's hard to get motivated when you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel. That was how I felt when my daughter was born 30+ years ago. . Yes, I focused on things that she could do, but I also mixed them up with all the things that she couldn't do at that moment and all the things she wouldn't be able to do in the future such as having friends, dating and going to the prom, graduating and going to college."

     Join us as Shandra shares parts of her journey, and principles of successfully parenting  a child with "differ-abilities"  in the areas of social skills, family integration, and education.
