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.

Braska: Working hard with Miss A

Sometimes I get to go to my school to do PT with Miss A. I really love those days! It's so much fun to play in the big room there. There's lots of climbing things, and I just love to climb. But I always start by banging on this part and getting all ready to go.


Then I like to swing. Sometimes the swing is like my swing at home, sometimes it's a big hard board that I sit or crawl on, but this time it was different. I didn't know what to do at first, but then it was kind of fun.

Miss A put me on the thing called a scooter. She and Mommy didn't think I'd be able to do it since my arms are not strong at all. But I did it! I had to work REALLY hard, but I did it.

Here's a super short movie of me showing off on the scooter.
