The Koch family from Germany

We are the Koch Family! A bilingual, Canadian/German family.

We have two great big football playing boys and one tiny football playing little girl!

Lola was diagnosed with DS at birth, which was a shock to mama and papa. We were especially concerned if Lola would be able to communicate in two languages. We didn’t want to put too much stress on her, but it the end we decided we wouldn’t do anything different with her than we did with her brothers. And now we have a bilingual little chatterbox!

Her capabilities are limitless and we are inspired by her everyday!

We love you, Lola!
