Not once over the past month have I uttered the words, "Down syndrome awareness month". At least not that I remember?
I used to post at least once a day, saying this phrase over and over again. But this year...not at all. Why?
It's not that I've stopped believing in the awareness month. Not at all. It's just that every single thing (almost) that I post throughout the year is for Down syndrome awareness, so I guess I just didn't think to add the tag.
But here on the last day of Down syndrome awareness month, I want to share some thoughts on Down syndrome:
1. Down syndrome is the diagnosis that blew my life apart...and then put it back together piece by piece...making it so much better than the original.
3. Down syndrome taught me how to love. How to live.
5. Down syndrome made me question the words, "Normal" and "Different" and understand that perhaps the two are really the same thing.
