The Purpose of this Blog

The goal of this blog is to provide education and bring about higher awareness about Down syndrome. It is to share that life with Down syndrome (DS) is not scary, horrible, or to be feared.

My experience comes from raising my daughter, Nebraska Larae (Braska), born November 2006 with Down syndrome.
The posts on this blog are related in some way to life with DS or disability, and they are reposted here from my other family blogs. There are links to those blogs in the margin on the right side of this blog if you would like to visit them directly.

Thank you for coming by.

31 for 21 Preview

It's that time again... almost October. For me, it's always been a fave, as the most wonderful people are born in this month... like me! But it's also Down Syndrome Awareness month. (Or should we say Month for Awareness of Down Syndrome to be PC? Sorry...I'm hardly ever PC.) So as we did last year, many of us are attempting to blog every day in October, focusing at least partially on DS and how it fits in our lives, affects it... or doesn't. There are a bunch--A BUNCH--of great blogs participating in this fun thing that Tricia started last year. So check out the list at her blog and get to know some new people this next month.

Get It Down; 31 for 21

As a preview, I found out about this today and thought it was pretty cool. It's worth checking out. And there are a few pics, but this is my fave...this little girl's face... priceless.

(Fair warning for some of you... every link I could find to this story failed to have people-first language. I looked. I tried to find one that did. It doesn't actually bother me, but I know some of you feel strongly about it. So I wanted you to know that I did try. :o)
