I volunteer at NDSS on Tuesday. I work in New York City. I come in at 11:00. I walk into the elevator. I see my boss. I see my co-workers. I go to my desk and start work. I look at the date on the calendar. Then I have a meeting with my boss. At the meeting we talk about the schedule. I type my schedule. 12:00 lunch. After lunch, work at 1:00. 2:15 coffee break. I work on shredding. I ask the staff if they have paper for shredding. I ask the staff for mail and we take the mail downstairs. I count the brochures. I put the paper inside the packages and put tape around the box. After that, postage. I use the postage machine. I take the mail downstairs, outside to the mailbox. I go to Starbucks on coffee break, I clean up and work on my computer. I work on my papers. I have to leave at 4:00. I say goodbye to my co-workers.

My son, Brett, too has DS. He is 34 years old this year. He is so much help for me as I have COPD and can't do certain things anymore. I wish that there were more interviews of DS persons. Truely loved Chris's story. Thanks for warming my heart today.
