Down syndrome awareness month

It is that time of the year again...Down syndrome awareness month!
This year I will not be posting every day for the month, I know I will not be able to do it, but I will be posting as much as I can on the Down syndrome section of my blog, so make sure that you check it out!

I would like you to participate with us in one of two simple ways.

1. Leave me a comment and tell me how someone with Down syndrome has enriched your life. I will be posting some of those comments!


2. I am giving you permission to ask anything you want or think about Down syndrome. I say I give you permission because I know many times people are hesitant to ask something in fear of offending, this is your chance. And if you prefer, then send me an e-mail (click on contact me tab)

And be checking out our Down syndrome blog this month!


  1. There is a lady at my work that has down syndrome. She has enriched my life in many ways in how she loves the Lord and those around her. When my work has been stressful or life in general she seems to always know. To cheer me up she comes and put her cheek on mine and gives me the biggest hug, then giggles, pulls away and gives me the most genuine smile. She can not talk, but her action's speak louder than any words and nothing else needs to be said. I'm grateful for her every day and that the Lord has let me get to know this special lady.

  2. My nephew (who has Ds) is an inspirer of love and joy. People are charmed by him immediately, and he's a great example of what love can do when it's offered without hesitation! He's a giver. And he's only 4 1/2!!! I am looking forward to the child, teenager, and adult he will be, too.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts with me. If you do not subscribe to comments, make sure you check back for my reply to your comment.
