World Down Syndrome Day 2016

The whole family observed World Down Syndrome Day.

We learned this year that March 21st is World Down Syndrome day and decided to observe the day in honor of Aaron and Katy’s daughter, Kate. We were turned down by two hospitals when we asked to put up an educational display and one of the local shopping complexes did not have space for us with their St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Next year we will plan further ahead and find a suitable place.

This year, however, we gathered together as a family and held our own observance. Katy had shirts printed for everyone which convey the message of the effort with a little humor. They say, “We love homies with extra chromies” and “get comfortable with the difference.” Couldn’t say it better! We love you, Kate.
