For 3 copies of the 21st chromosome, unique to Down syndrome. In my opinion, creating some of the cutest of the cute out there. Don’t miss the video below.
World Down Syndrome Day.
Take the chance to tell someone a wonderful thing about someone you know with DS. Or share with someone how your views have changed now that you know and love someone with DS. If Braska is the only person with DS that you know, be sure to brag on her a bit today. I don’t mind at all! Feel free to link to the recent post about how far she has come since her heart surgery 4 years ago.
Today, make a decision to be intentional about making others aware that a diagnosis of DS does not have to be met with utter despair, it doesn’t have to be a death sentence, and it is not a reason to take an unborn child’s life.
Just tell someone.
The IDSC for Life has put together a really nice video of some of our little beauties… I have my favorite in there, and a few who follow close behind her. Maybe posting a link to this in your Facebook status or on your blog or Twitter would be a great awareness opportunity.
