Looking for Support and Suggestions - Adopting LO w. DS

Hello mommas, I am new to this forum.
My husband and I are adopting a little girl, she is 3 and lives in an orphanage right now. She has particularly low tone, failure to thrive (I suspect), and Down syndrome.
I am looking for support and suggestions.
Any books, groups, fundraising ideas, things to have for her, things to do to prepare for her, and how to help her achieve her best when she's home.
You can email me at savingolive@me.com
or you can comment/pm me.
You can also leave comments on our blog:

I don't have any advice or anything, but I just wanted to send HHHHHUUUUUUGGGGGGGEEEEEEE for giving this baby girl the life that she deserves! I checked your blog, and oh she is gorgeous! What a beautiful gift that you are about to give her, and what a beautiful gift that she is going to give your family!

Oh yay! I'm so excited for you!! My little girl with Down syndrome is 3 and she's amazing!!!!

There are a lot of adoption blogs out there for people adopting kids with T21. And there are a few Down syndrome message boards that could be great resources for you. Downsyn.com is probably the largest board.

Good luck!!!!!
