My daughter and son have both been advocates for their baby sister since day one. Rylee especially. Well Rylee and her friend Maija had a dream of starting up their own business to help support Down Syndrome awareness. See, Maija also has a baby sister, Isabella, with Down Syndrome. Not only that, but they live just a few blocks away from us! We have made great friendships with this family and Mayson and Isabella are only 9 days apart so they have also become the best of friends. Its a beautiful thing, let me tell ya!
Anyway, to get back to their business dream......They have started their own soy candle and soap business all for Down Syndrome!!! It is called MAYBELL'S SOAPS AND CANDLES. They have their own website now and they are up and running!! These two girls have shown us how un-selfish(is that a word?) they are and how much their sisters mean to them. We have been amazed!
So, please check out their website and their products and support Down Syndrome Awareness!

    I saw you post this on Downsyn, How awesome-such sweet girls.
    Isn't it funny how we worry about how siblings will be affected by DS? This proves there is nothing to worry about!
