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: 31 for 21: Serious coloring

After we watched the Bears win on Sunday (Woo hoo! I got to say “Touchdown!” alot!!), we took a little trip in the car, and then we went to eat dinner.  The nice lady there gave me a paper and colors. And I was doing really good til Mommy kept flashing her camera at me.

Can you tell what I was trying to say to her with my eyes?

“Mom. Please. Let me color. Enough with the pictures.”

(Mommy note: Since we’re highlighting DS this month, note Braska’s little pinky finger on her left hand. See how it’s a little crooked.  It’s a trait of DS. And we think it’s adorable. Interestingly, it’s also not uncommon in M’s family.)
