    Down Syndrome Awareness month!!

    Just a reminder that October is Down Syndrome awareness month. If you have a Buddy Walk in your town or nearby, please don't hesitate to participate, whether you have a child with DS or not. If there isn't one, see what you can do to help get one organized and started in your community next year.

    Blue and yellow are the colors that are used. If you want to find some awareness materials or need info on Buddy Walks, go to www.ndss.org (national down syndrome society).

    To my fellow mommies, just know that I love you and give your kiddos a squeeze from me and my family! We still have a long way to go, but I'm so happy to know that we live in a day and age where our kiddos have so many more advantages and opportunities than they have had in the past.

    Also, if you go to that website, there is info on a very awesome bill that was passed that now requires drs to give current and accurate info to parents receiving a prenatal or postnatal diagnosis for any condition! Yes!
