Down Syndrome Day 3.21
Today is Down Syndrome Day, celebrating the 3rd copy of the 21st chromosome. Ten years ago my oldest daughter worked at a summer camp where kids and adults with Down Syndrome could attend. It was a great experience for her, one that she will never forget. Working at the camp helped shape her outlook on life. A few years later she met a single father, raising his son with Downs Syndrome on his own. They started dating and are now married. I got a grandson in the deal...nice! I learn so much from our little guy. He's really just like any other kid, only sweeter (okay, I may be biased).
Check out what they did in Italy today...Eccelente!
