Inspirational Story About Children With Down Syndrome

by Laura Christianson

I was doing some research for a profile I’m writing about Barbara and Tripp Curtis for Marriage Partnership magazine when I ran across a beautiful story Barbara wrote about her son, who has Down syndrome.

The story, called, "A Little Extra," is a timeless slice-of-life vignette that I think you’ll enjoy.

In addition to giving birth to a son with Down syndrome, Barbara and Tripp have adopted three sons, all of whom have Down syndrome. Their (adopted) sons are now 7, 11, and 12. Jonny, who Barbara writes about in "A Little Extra," is now 15 and heading into 9th grade this fall.
