Hi my name is Susan Hynes and together with my husband Michael we have twin boys called Noah and Isaac who were born in May 2014. We joined DSL in 2011 when our son Samuel was born and in 2015 I was humbled to be made a Co-opted Trustee.
Sadly Samuel passed away in January 2015 aged just 3 due to a condition that was unrelated to Down Syndrome. Samuel was an amazing little boy who could light up a room with his beautiful smile. He achieved the things any child of 3 could, it just took him a little longer to get there but proved he had the determination needed to reach his milestones.
DSL have been there for me through good times and bad and the support our family have received has been truly amazing. As a very honoured Co-opted Trustee I enjoy helping at our Parent & Toddler group, attending trustee meetings, helping organise fundraising and social events amongst other things. I mostly enjoy watching our members grow,develop and achieve.
I hope that as a member and Co-opted Trustee of DSL, I can offer my help and support to others.
