Happy World Down Syndrome Day

It's a day to recognize those with Down Syndrome,
for their abilities and gifts...
making them just like you and me ;)

World Down Syndrome Day 2013

Featured ImageWorld Down Syndrome Day is on 3/21 to symbolize a third copy of the 21st chromosome in people with Down syndrome. Celebrate the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome on March 21!

Our family joins others around the world in celebrating those with Down Syndrome.
Our life has never been the same since we found out that Jonathan would be born with an extra 
chromosome. Through Jonathan we have learned what true determination is, we have seen life and the world in a whole new way. We are thankful for looking at life at a slower pace, when things were challenging and health is poor. We try to make each day count for life with
 Jonathan has been fragile at times.
Jonathan is an awesome source of encouragement and lives out true joy! 
If, you were around Jonathan for a few moments you would quickly see a teen boy...
who can't be defined by Down Syndrome. 
We love you Jonathan,
Happy World Down Syndrome Day!

~Jonathan the serious side~

How tall do you think he will be? Boys really grow rapidly once they hit "double digits" on birthdays, don't they? He is precious and super blessed to have been placed in your loving family.
