World Down Syndrome Day


Today, March 21st is World Down Syndrome day. They choose this day because people with down syndrome have an extra chromosome 21. So, that gives them 3 instead of 2, hence 3/21. What a wonderful thing to set aside a day for those who have down syndrome. (Thanks Renee for reminding me what today is!!) Even with all the ups and downs in life with Jonathan, we don't see the down with this syndrome. Jonathan has shown us how to slow DOWN and enjoy ALL of what we've been given. I'm so thankful to have a child who was blessed with and extra chromosome, I consider it a honor.
