World Down Syndrome Day

Today people all over the world are celebrating those with Down Syndrome.  Down Syndrome is the triplicate of the 21st chromosome, therefore World Down Syndrome Day is on 3-21!
Yeah, a celebration!  This calls for ice cream!!!!

If you follow our blog you know that we celebrate all the blessings God has given us, especially in our children.    Down syndrome is just a small part of Alayna.  It in no way defines her.  She continues to amaze us each day with her sweet personality, trust me she has a way of drawing you in.  Her toddler antics amuse us and she has proven that she is going to grow, learn, excel and soar in this world.

Alayna has truly opened our eyes to the beauty of down syndrome, which is one of the main reasons we began our adoption journey.  We are so looking forward to having Dariya home with our family.  Next year we will have even more reason to celebrate the day. 

We hope you will join us today in celebrating everyone who has down syndrome.  God made each and everyone perfect.   
If in your celebration you decide you can live without your Starbucks (or whatever your vice may be) and donate to Dariya's fund we would be humbly thankful.
