What I Will be Doing on WDSD
What I Will be Doing on WDSD

My beautiful son Jack who happens to have an extra chromosome is scheduled to make his entrance into the world on March 20, 2012. On World Down Syndrome Day I will be holding and loving my baby boy and beginning our journey together. Hopefully this annual event will help promote acceptance and inclusion of those with Down syndrome and allow my child to be known as Jack, not Jack with Down syndrome.

My baby was born november 15, 2012. We didn't know that he had Down Syndrome but I tell you he is such a blessing! just to hear what you had said before you met your little one was AWESOME! My hope is that my son grows up in a world that is accepting and he is known for his abilities.
