The paragraphs below are excerpts from Jack's Basket's website.
Jack's Basket mission is to celebrate every child born with Down syndrome and congratulate their family with gifts, support, and resources.
As Jack's 1st birthday was approaching, I wanted to bring something to the hospital to celebrate his life. My thoughts were leaning towards giving some flowers but the more I thought about the emotions and interactions we had during our stay, I was thinking something bigger and more meaningful. What if we delivered a gift basket to a family like ours, a family that will receive news that their child has Down syndrome?
In any life experience, receiving unexpected news can be very difficult and hard to process. To have another person come alongside and share in their experience often gives hope and healing, knowing that you are not alone. To encourage a family like ours, to give them hope for the future, and share how much our sweet Jack has changed our lives for the better. I found the best resource for us in our new journey was not reading the books on Down syndrome, it was hearing from actual families that are loving and living their lives raising their child with Down syndrome. So I created a basket...Jack’s Basket.
Each basket contains a personal letter from Jack's family and his buddy's and is written to encourage families on this new, unexpected journey. Brochures from Help Me Grow, Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network (DSDN), Down Syndrome Association of Minnesota (DSAM) and Gigi's Playhouse-Twin Cities are provided in the baskets along with a personalized onesie, a book titled Bloom by Kelle Hampton, blanket, hand knit hat and booties, free online book Unexpected: Stories of Down syndrome Diagnosis by Jen Jacob, a violin lullaby CD, and favorite toys of Jack's.
