New Stories added often....

We are able to add more stories to the "Our Stories" portion of this blog. We do that as often as a family tells us they would like us to add their story to the page. Please check back often to read them. They are beautiful heartfelt stories of each families journey in the Trisomy 21 experience. Click here to read them!

If you would like to share your story, please let us know. We would love to put it on here! You can email us at

If you have been at all inspired by any of the stories you have read, we would love to know that as well. Our children are a blessing, and we only hope you will be both inspired and blessed by them as well!

Hidden Treasures Video Montage

We hope you took the time to click the above montage!
We believe you will be blessed by meeting our children.

Why this site?

In the United States, there is a 90-94% rate of termination of pregnancies associated with Trisomy 21. In the UK it is said to be at 95%. These numbers reflect to us that there is misinformation about what life is really like with our darlings. As parents of children with Ds, we want to help others to know what it is REALLY like. Unfortunately, many either do not get any information, or they are given outdated information. It is our hope that families can come here to see the beauty of our children, and find support in their journey.

Why the name "Hidden Treasures"?

Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta often referred to those in the world that others did not value as hidden treasures. We are concerned that the value of an individual with Trisomy 21 is being diminished. As you see from our montage, and as you read in our stories in the Our Stories section, we feel so blessed to have our children. We want to give parents who receive this diagnosis a true look, from the parent's perspective.

Who is the artist singing in the video?

We have been asked OFTEN, who is singing the song on our video above? It is Greg Troyer. We are thrilled that Greg has been able to see our project. Here is what Greg had to say about Hidden Treasures... "I just want to say thank you for the honor of using my song for such an important thing. It really helps to encourage me that this music I write and labor over is not done in vain. God will continue moving in ways that He sees fit, and that is enough to keep us all going. Your video and cause are so inspiring that it makes regular day to day things seem to pale in comparison. God bless you, your family, and all of the other children and families that are affected by your ministry. Thank you again, Greg Troyer"

We thank you, Greg, for listening to God's call, and following it. Your song has been a blessing to us!
