Down Syndrome

Celebrating My Sister's Life on World Down Syndrome Day

Celebrating My Sister's Life on World Down Syndrome Day

Thursday, March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day (celebrated then because people with Down syndrome have a 3rd copy of their 21st chromosome, Trisomy 21). I hope the voices of those of us who know and love people with Down syndrome will speak loud and clear about the blessings they bring to our lives, not because of what they can or can’t do, but simply because of who they are—created in the image of God.
