Tomorrow is World Down syndrome day.
It is a worldwide day set aside to raise awareness about Down syndrome.
You should already know that people with Down syndrome are close to my heart.
I LOVE them!
I am posting many pictures of Kristen.
I hope you'll notice that she is more alike other children than different.
She is daughter, a sister, a niece, an aunt, a granddaughter, and a friend.
She went to school, she danced, she sang, she had a dog, she walked,
she was potty trained before she turned 3, she dressed herself, she fed herself,
she loved to go swimming, she loved to go to lunch,
she had a best friend, she LOVED watching movies
and the list goes on and on.
She was NEVER a burden.
She was a stinker on many occasions as were my other children.
She loved life.
She was loved by all.
She was a pure, beautiful and genuine girl!
Tomorrow people across the world are wearing bright colorful
and even mismatched socks. I invite you to do the same. When asked about your
socks, talk about Kristen and how she was born with Down syndrome.
Tell everyone that she was a JOY as all children are.
