October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month







The month of October is Down Syndrome (A.K.A. trisomy 21) Awareness month.

Tricia came up with the idea of blogging all 31 days of October for DS.....31 for 21. For the next 31 days you won't just see the ins and outs of our day to day life. You will get to see the MANY joys of having a child blessed with DS, along with the struggles. DS doesn't define who Jonathan is, for DS is only a label. I hope in the next 31 days to help people open their eyes to see not what the mind tells you to see, BUT what the heart does.....like Jonathan.

This is Jonathan with Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz, it's his favorite movie. Did I mention he also loves Dorothy...cardboard or not he was trilled to get his picture with her. Oh' to see life through his eyes.

I hope you come along for the next 31 days....I pray I can keep up :)
