Happy October! Happy National Down syndrome month! In October 1984, President Ronald Reagan signed a resolution proclaiming the first "National Down Syndrome Month". This resolution is part of an ongoing national effort to raise awareness about the abilities of people with Down syndrome. I am happy to have an active and direct part in this great effort now. Sara has blessed our lives in so many ways already. She is going to rock her designer genes!
We could learn a lot from crayons: some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names, and all are different colors but they all have to learn to live in the same box.
Please join me in accepting that being different isn't different after all. We all add color to the canvas of life and life is so much better in color!
