Celebrate World Down Syndrome Day this March 21
with Random Acts of Kindness!
Help us celebrate and honor all those with Down syndrome.
I started my random acts earlier in the week.
I left cookies in the break room at work.
I'm going to get my grandchildren involved on Saturday.
We'll add pictures as we go.
It is my wish to let the world know
that having a child born with
Down syndrome is truly a blessing.
Kristen brought joy and love to the world.
I found something my dad wrote in his notebook
shortly after Kristen was born. I'm not sure who the author is,
but it must have had great meaning to my dad as he
penned it in his little notebook.
This is what is says,
"You make an excellent point that I have taken to heart.
Saying one "suffers" from Down syndrome
is a misplaced judgment.
I believe that when our maker calls us home,
he'll welcome all his special children first.
The rest of us will wait with bated breath,
praying for entrance.
And when you look at it from this point of view,
which of us has the handicap?"
We'll continue to celebrate her life, her beauty and her love.
We'll continue to support her friends all over the world who
are trying to feel included and loved, and especially
those who just want and need to be born.
We love and miss our angel girl.
