{31 for 21} Down Syndrome Awareness

It's October.  The year is flying by.  But I wanted to take time to share something dear to me.  

All over you're going to be seeing things about the campaign to go pink, to support breast cancer.  But that's not the only issue to be aware of this month.  Don't get me wrong, there isn't anything wrong with being aware of breast cancer and helping to find a cure, it just isn't as important to me.

This is.

My Sweet Pea.

Why is she more important this month?  Because of this.

My Sweet Pea was born with a little something extra and this is the month to celebrate that and to let others know that a diagnosis of Down syndrome doesn't mean your baby isn't perfect.  It just means that you will have to change YOUR ideas of what perfect means and learn to LOVE in a way you didn't think was possible.
