Today is World Down Syndrome Day. The date (3/21) signifies the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome. It is a day to celebrate all those individuals with Down syndrome that have touched our lives. Today especially, I am thankful for my daughter Antalya and all she has added to my life in her three short years on earth.
I recently read the beautiful birth story of Nella who was also born with Down syndrome. You should check it out. As I read it, I realized that I have never taken the chance to write down the story of Antalya's birth. So I have begun Antalya's story, but it is getting late, and so I promise to take the time to finish tomorrow and post it. Until then, wishing you all a very Happy World Down Syndrome Day.
How has your life been touched by someone with Down syndrome?
