Are you aware?
In case you were not aware, October is Down Syndrome Awareness month.
Before I was blessed with my baby girl, I don’t think I would have been aware that October is Down Syndrome Awareness month.
Heck, before Carly, I could not count on one hand how many people I knew that had a child with Down Syndrome.
Once we had Carly, my eyes opened up to how many individuals either have, raise, or know someone with Down Syndrome.
Now, half of my Facebook friends and most of the folks I follow in Twitter are parents of children who have Down Syndrome.
Now, I write two blogs about raising a daughter with Down Syndrome.
Now, I am participating in the 31 for 21 post a day blog challenge for Down Syndrome Awareness month.
Now, I fine my coworkers $1 for each time they say the R-word.
Now, I am completely aware.
