I Live with Peter Pan 
written by local mom Missy Vaughn

I Live with Peter Pan is a children's book from the perspective of a young child about life with a brother who has Down syndrome.

"I understand that there are a lot of questions and concerns that come with any diagnosis, especially fear of the unknown. I can only hope and pray that you, your family, and friends are able to experience the love, joy, and the smiles that come with two words that forever changed our lives...Down Syndrome." - Missy Vaughn
