Well, to those people I say:
HAPPY WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY!"
Today is absolutely a day to celebrate. We celebrate our friends who rock the extra chromosome; The brand new babies with Ds in our lives and their amazing parents; The little ones from all over the world who were initially tossed aside and deemed worthless, who were given a second chance at life and are now in loving homes.
We celebrate our son. Without his extra chromosome, we would have never found him. And our lives would not be near as full as they are today. The joy that he brings to our family is truly indescribable.
I asked the kids the other day what they wanted to do to celebrate World Down Syndrome Day this year. And Ace let me know, "we just wanna dance." Archie agreed.
So dancing they did.
Happy World Down Syndrome Day from our family to yours!
LOTS OF LOVE!
