A day to celebrate...

3/21….today is World Down Syndrome Day!! {it's also Throwback Thursday;)} 3/21 to symbolize a third copy of the 21st chromosome in people with Down syndrome. Because that extra chromosome makes this world extraordinary! We love you Bennett and all your awesome friends!!!

Bennett at one year;)

And I just loved this (taken from my friend Aimee)...

Today (3/21 for three copies of the 21st chromosome) we're not spreading awareness that Down syndrome exists. We're spreading awareness that Bennett and other people with Down syndrome are more alike than they are different. That they are capable, intelligent, able, fun, and caring. That, by including them in society, in our classrooms, and in our workplaces all of our lives are a little bit better, a little brighter. And if we really pay attention, they will teach us just as much as we teach them. Down syndrome ISN'T scary, it's just a little different. Every day I am thankful that we were blessed to be just a little bit different.

Also, check out this video and help support my friend's effort!
