I know that most of my readers found this blog because….
a) we "met" when I was pregnant through the Down syndrome pregnancy group on Babycenter
b) they have a child with Down syndrome and needed information, and google sent them my way, or
c) they are related to me.
But there are others who don't have a child with Down syndrome directly in their lives, who have discovered this blog through other means.
Please stick around this month.
You see, preaching to the choir isn't that effective. The point of this month is to reach out. So this month, please do something to show you value people who are different from you. Teach your kids about disability and how having a disability is okay. Help out with Special Olympics or Best Buddies. Ask your employer to pursue hiring individuals with disabilities.
Sharing cute pictures is awesome. Those cute photos bring hope to parents who are scared of the future, just like I was four years ago.
But take action, too.
Happy Awareness. And Acceptance. And Love.
