World Down Syndrome Day

Today is World Down Syndrome Day.

People all over the world are celebrating the wonderful lives that we have been blessed with in our loved one with down syndrome.

It is a day of advocacy,

a day of celebration,

a day to honor those who have three 21st chromosomes.

We are doubly blessed here as having Alayna opened our eyes to the plight of orphans with down syndrome around the globe.  Thankfully God blessed us with bringing Dariya into our family.

These two girls bring so much joy to our family.  They are capable, independent, funny, able to learn, and full of love.

Today we celebrate our girls and all our friends that share that extra chromosome.

We hope you will join us by advocating about down syndrome.  Share your story of how someone with ds has touched your life.

If you are in the mood for dinner out tonight eat at Ruby Tuesdays as they are donating 20% to the local down syndrome association. Click the link and print the flier and give it to your server tonight!

Happy World Down Syndrome Day!

Oh! I totally forgot about Ruby Tuesday doing that. Sadly, they closed our local one last year. :-( Happy WDSD to you all, and especially to those two beautiful little girls of yours!
