Happy World Down Syndrome Day!!

Today is World Down Syndrome Day!!! I went into Ella's 1st grade class and read a story about Down syndrome and Ella handed out yellow and blue cake pops to all the kids. The kids asked great questions! At the end Ella's teacher handed Ella a folder full of cards that her classmates made for her. Reading through them brought tears to my eyes! THIS is inclusion working!!!



 You are one of my best friends. You are awesome



You are fun and you are a good friend and you are nice you are my hero you are the nicest friend

What a wonderful blog and what a beautiful family you have. We've just received a screening result that our third child is high risk at having Downs syndrome and it is blogs like this that make us realise it is something we can cope with. Every child is precious. Thank you for sharing
