All over the world people are celebrating today and doing everything possible to bring Down syndrome awareness and stamp out stereotypes.
Did you realize that 80% of the total number of babies born with DS are born to mothers under the age of 35? Across all age groups the ratio of DS births to other births is 1 in 800. When I think about that, I am always amazed at the knowledge that Isaac’s birth was no accident. God had a specific design for my little boy and chose him over the other 800 other possibilities. Wow!!!
So today in my own little corner of the world, I am celebrating World Down Syndrome Day by giving thanks to my God above for his infinite wisdom and love in choosing to entrust us with caring for such a precious and special gift. Oh happy day!
Our journey so far….
