Today is world Down syndrome Day.
A day we celebrate people like Russell who are blessed with a tiny extra chromosome.
And the 21st day representing the 21st chromosome.
3. 21. 2012.
And what makes this year extra special is that this is the first year that World Down syndrome Day is being officially recognized by the United Nations.
I have to say I was not going to post today...For some reason I just can't seem to find the right words.
And it seems like there are hundreds of other Moms who are all saying it a million times better than I ever could! I was in tears today reading through posts...All of them, simply beautiful.
To all my friends and family reading this if you have a minute visit some of the blogs on my sidebar...There were some pretty amazing posts today!
And all I want to say is that today I feel a tremendous amount of pride in my son.
And today I feel honored and proud to be a part of the Ds community.
