As this week is national Down Syndrome Awareness Week, thought I would share some links to the Canadian Down Syndrome Society Webpage,http://cdss.ca/ndsaw/
Why do we celebrate NDSAW?
Declaration of National Down Syndrome Awareness Week
Also wanted to share Jaxson's story, He has two great Moms : who have a blog and they explained it like this:
My name is Holly, and along with my wife Alex, are mommas to a beautiful baby named Jaxson. Jaxson made us mommies overnight and has thrown us, head first, into the world of parenting, Down Syndrome and adoption. This is our blog about our randomly, beautiful life together.
Check out their adventures at the blog, there is also some great stories, and they talk about Jax's issues with sleep apnea in the October 24th post, that I am sure could be helpful to some.
Thanks to the Utah Down Syndrome Foundation, for creating this video called: "Down syndrome 101", an easy-to-follow video explaining the basics of Down syndrome. This educational video is perfect for new and expectant parents, and also great for use in school classrooms. Please check it out, and share.
This is another great video!! we are more alike than different!! Check it out! What do you want to be when you grow up?
