31 for 21: Down Syndrome Awareness

Day 1:  Many people know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but you may not be aware that October is also Down Syndrome Awareness Month.  This year I am participating in the 31 for 21 blogging campaign. During October, my blog will hopefully WILL have 31 posts to help raise awareness for Down syndrome.  Some of these posts will focus specifically on Ds, and others may not mention it at all.  After all, while Ds is a part of our lives, it doesn't consume us.

I know that a lot of my readers are fellow T21 moms, but if anyone has any questions about Ds, therapy, OHS, or our family specifically, please ask away.  One of my goals during this month is to help eliminate some of the common misconceptions and stereotypes regarding Ds. 

There are many wonderful bloggers participating this month, and the button in the right sidebar and at the top of this post links to them.
