Happy Down Syndrome Awareness Month!

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month!

This month is dedicated to educating the public about Down syndrome, and dispelling many misconceptions and incorrect assumptions about individuals with Down syndrome. It is also a chance for us to show our support for those that we know with Down syndrome, and to share our joy of being blessed by an individual with Down syndrome in our lives.

Many Buddy Walks take place in October. Ours is October 24. We are really looking forward to it!

Also, in honor of Down Syndrome Awareness Month, Parenting.com is, once again, collecting pictures of our little cuties and displaying them on their website. If you have a jewel with a little extra, click on this link to find out how to submit your picture.

Last year we got Anna's picture in just in time. She was the last picture to be posted. This is a picture of Anna from when she was in the hospital with croup. (Actually, this is from the day she was being released...you can see that she is very happy to be going home!)

To check out all the cuties from last year, click here. If you are a blogger, or are online, you will see a few familiar faces.

So...you have 31 (official) days. Get out there and spread the word, show your support and share your joy!

I will leave you with this video to enjoy =)
