This is such a wonderful thing you are offering. O had a brother with down Syndrome which was my heart and soul. This is what lead to my sister to adopt 4 children with down syndrome from birth to now. Scott is know 25, Mike is 24, Katie is 18 and our Abby is 13. I don't know what our family would do with out them! You are truly a inspiration.

Test-optional admissions mean that schools won’t require a submission of a standardized test score as part of the admissions process.
