Though Miles had Down syndrome, I knew I had a bright child when I held him in the NICU and watched how alert his eyes were, how he reacted to sounds in the room. Four years later, Miles is in preschool and though slightly behind in development, he's still alert as well as curious and mischievous! He loves doing things for himself and is always happy to help rinse the dishes. He knows his colors and can count to ten. He knows the rules but tries to bend them sometimes. He's just like any kid!
