Today I Learned Something About Down Syndrome

This post has been all over Facebook, so you may have seen it already.

But if you haven't read it, please take a minute to do so.

When we found out Claire had Ds, this is what I was worried about.  People who would take one look at her, and instantly write her off.

And while things won't change over night, I rejoice each time someone really does learn something about Down syndrome.

  2. Wow, I hadn't read this! If only more people could take that experience and learn from it. So many other people would still brush them off! If only there was a way to make everyone in the world read this post!

  4. This was my fear and sadness about Kaylen- not that she had Ds, but how the world would see her (or rather, NOT see her). His honesty made me smile, so I had to post it to my fb. Thanks for sharing! :)
