NDSC Convention - New Friends Found in DC

In July The National Down Syndrome Congress held their 40th national convention in Washington, DC. I had a booth in the exhibit hall where I sold my books. Next to me was Katie and her "Kreations". I so enjoyed meeting and getting to know Katie, her mother, Ruth, and friend, Donna. Katie is a gifted artist and her sales revealed so---she even has a gallery in Ft. Fierce, Florida. Check out her website As is written on the back of her stationery "Katie uses her art to encourage and inspire individuals with disabilities to achieve their dreams." Of course I had to have some of her creations myself! Thanks, Katie!
