Today is World Down Syndrome Day. 3-21-12.
It is celebrated on this day because people with Down Syndrome have an extra copy of the 21st chromosome. So they have three copies of chromosome 21, instead of two. So 3-21.
Last night we stayed up late making matching T-Shirts for the kids.
(These are their rock star looks)
I had to get creative on the back because we ran out of letters. R's are upside down J's, the D's an upside down P. All of the numbers are made from letters. I think it works though, right?
Ace has been super into making videos with our Flip camera lately. It is pretty hilarious how serious she is about it. She wanted to make a movie for World Down Syndrome Day. She actually worked really hard on this. She came up with what to say, what they would wear, where each scene would take place. I am so proud of my sweet girl and her heart.
Raising a child with Down Syndrome is challenging.
But it is so worth all of the incredible blessings that come along with it.
Lots of Love!
