World Down Syndrome Day 3/21 (Trisomy 21)

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….
