“When I had my little Evie, it was unknown that she had Down syndrome. I fell into a pool of grief, I was absolute devastated. I was to busy crying to see my baby. My beautiful baby. Forward a year on and I'm here. so what has down syndrome taught me? Down syndrome has taught me patience. To slow right down. I'd be lying if I said it never bothers me Evies still not crawling, etc. When I see children younger I then realise she's behind. The Facebook updates of children walking etc, it pangs my heart a little. I can't wait for these moments. But on the other hand, I get my baby for longer. I get longer to cherish every single stage. It's no longer blink and you miss it. It's like the tortoise and the hare, she will get there at her own pace. . . Down syndrome has taught me not to be afraid of life. We all take for granted, our fertility, perfect pregnancy, healthy children, perfect birth, and what we visualize as 'perfect kids'. . . We all are born with the rose tinted specs, and expectations, yet sometimes, just sometimes life's not like that. Down syndrome has taught me to strive to be a better person. To have more empathy, talk to more people, get out if my comfort zone, to show my three girls, life shouldn't restrict you, and nor should a disability. And when you take those rose tinted specs of, life's still pretty good.” 💛💙✨ @a_little_extra_t21 #iamable #theluckyfew #ablefinder

***MEET THE FAMILY*** THE WHITFIELDS Karlien reached out to me via Learning from Luke after receiving a post natal Down Syndrome Diagnosis and I am eternally grateful that she did. One of the primary purposes of putting our family out there onto social media is to assist new families in coming to terms with their new reality and to showcase to them the exciting journey that they are in for. It has been an absolute honor to watch you and your beautiful family grow in strength and in love and I cannot wait for what is in store for all of you. Thank you for reaching out and coming into our lives, it has been the greatest pleasure getting to know you, Mark, Esmae and Oliver.

#Repost @candidlykind with @get_repost ・・・ October is Down syndrome awareness month. Grace has Down syndrome but it does NOT define her. Here are a few things that define Grace...She is a human being, a 20 year old young beautiful lady...a high school graduate, a daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin and an amazing friend. Grace is funny, intelligent and talented. She is kind, determined, sassy, compassionate, loving, stubborn and very candid! Grace is an artist, model, advocate, entrepreneur and business owner, an ambassador and an avid philanthropist. She enjoys swimming, cheering for her favorite football teams, doing makeup, shopping and glamming up. Grace enjoys working out at the gym with her trainer and continuing her studies with a private teacher. She loves Netflix and watching YouTube makeup tutorials. These are only a sprinkling of the many qualities and activities Grace enjoys. She is just like you, just like me. She wants what everyone wants, happiness and fulfillment, relationships and love. She happens to have 1 extra 21st chromosome but NO that does not define her! There are no limits to what she and anyone else can do when given the support, love and opportunity. Spread the word. People with Down syndrome CAN and they WILL! ♥️♥️♥️ #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndromeawarenessmonth #justbekind #candidlykind #nolimits #humanity #nothingdownaboutit #makeuponpoint #strikeapose #typicalisboring #dontbemainstream #upsyndrome #photoshoot #ability #morealikethandifferent

#Repost @downsyndromemagazine • • • En el mes de la concienciación del Sindrome de Down 💙💛 voy a contaros una historia que le pasó a mi mamá, bueno, mejor que os lo cuente ella. Para ver el video, podéis hacer link en mi bio. . . “Lo he escrito a modo de cuento, porque somos los papás y mamás, los que debemos educar a nuestros hijos sobre lo que es el Síndrome de Down. Para que la sociedad los acepte, tal y cómo son. El otro día un amiguito de Noa, que tiene 8 años, al enterarse que ella tenía Síndrome de Down, le preguntó a su mamá ¿Entonces Noa está enferma? Claro que no, le dijo la mamá. “Noa es una niña cómo las demás, que no está malita, está sana. Pero tiene más dificultad para aprender las cosas y va más despacito. Por eso, le cuesta más hablar y hacer otras cosas. Precisamente, porque van más despacito, necesitan trabajar más. Y desde bebés están luchando por todo. Por el esfuerzo que supone todo eso, cada pequeño logro de ellos, es un gran triunfo para todos. Noa puede hacer las cosas como los demás, pero necesita más ayuda y dedicación. Ella está aprendiendo a leer, hace ballet, sabe nadar y ahora está haciendo lo que le gusta, que es…desfilar. Las personas con Sindrome de Down suelen ser muy cariñosos, sensibles y muy felices. Pero cada persona es un mundo y no tienen porque ser todos iguales. Todo eso y más, es el Sindrome de Down” Y el amiguito de Noa se fue tan contento con la explicación que le había dado su mamá.” ~ @irma.pct . . @elcuadernodenoa #elcuadernodenoa #lifeisbetterwithdown . . #sindromededown #sindromedown #downaddicts #vivircondown #amorsindromededown #dsawareness #cambiandomodelos #savedownsyndrome #downsyndrome #disabilityawareness #downrightperfect #masupquedown #sindrome21down #cromossomo21#t21 #cromossomodoamor #differentcapabilities #morealikethandifferent #trisomia21 #specialneedskids #t21momsarethebest #downsyndromecutie #downgirl #downsyndromemodel #downsyndromeprincess #downloversquedejanhuella

Almost 90% of babies diagnosed with Down syndrome while in the womb are aborted. We, the Pro-Life Generation, will work to ensure all human life is valued. We will abolish abortion in our lifetime.

💙💛SABI The best sister! . I was worried about Matteo’s feelings and reaction of having a little sister, and even more knowing that she might needed more time and dedication from everyone including him. But here is just a little bit of why everything just banished as soon as she was born. This two love so very much that I can’t tell you exactly, and is thought love lol, they fight, they play, sign, fight again, they hug, kiss, fight again but he always wants to be with her, no matter what.

#Emmietheunicornprincess is just every other kid on the planet and has favorite things. She loves playing games like peek-a-boo, pat-a-cake (or patty cake, whichever you prefer) likes to turn the pages in her books, her baby doll, a few TV shows and She LOVES the aquarium and fish and had a pretty fun time at the zoo. Someone once said they thought it was so sad that babies with Down syndrome didn't find interest in things. Welp, I'm here to tell you, THIS ONE SURE DOES! Hahahaha she would live in the water with the fish if she could because she loves them that much and shows that much interest in them. It's one of her signs that she constantly throws at us because she just loves fish 😂😂🐟🐠🐡🦈🐬🐳 #waterbaby . . . #t21 #nothingdownaboutit #downsyndromelove #theluckyfew #morealikethandifferent #shouttheirworth #lifeisbetterwithyou #homiewithanextrachromie #dsawareness #downsyndromeawareness #livingwithalittleextra #savedownsyndrome #downrightperfect #upsyndrome #chromosomecutie #extrablessed #changingthefaceofbeauty #downsyndromelove #dsdn #t21love💙💛 #rocktober #downsyndromeawarenessmonth

Things you can say to someone who has just had a baby with Down Syndrome: 1. Congratulations! 2. Your baby is beautiful! 3. I have a friend who has a child with DS and they are very happy! 4. He/She looks like his mommy/daddy/brother/sister 5. If you would like to talk, I’m here to listen. 6. Do you need anything? 7. If you need support there is a great Facebook page called the Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network. @thedsdn 8. There are so many programs and medical support that your baby will be well taken care of. 9. Love doesn’t count chromosomes and I love you and your baby. 10. Everything that you are feeling is normal and ok. Everything. #fearfullyandwonderfullymade #downsyndromelove #godgiven #childrenareagift #morealikethandifferent #notbroken #bekind #loveiskind #dsdn

DSAM Fun Fact #14: my BFF Tierney includes me in almost all of her shenanigans. (We do share a house and a room and parents and all.) But I will also be included when it's time for me to go to school. Studies are showing that putting us rockin' kids in the same classes as our peers without disabilities is best for us. Turns out it's good for them too. Being exposed to people who are different from you increases empathy and compassion. Go give it a try. I'll be here when you get back. #morealikethandifferent . . . . #downsyndromelove #lifeisbetterwithyou #theluckyfew #dsdn #nothingdownabouthim #adore_able #shouttheirworth #downsyndromeawareness #dsawareness #downsyndromeawarenessmonth

DS awareness month question #3 comes from @essentialnana..... Do babies/children with DS have different timing for their milestones? Yes they do. Sometimes kids with DS need a little extra help doing things that come easily to typical kids, sometimes they don’t. This is why we do our therapy. Right now Ivy is working on sitting. Because people with DS are more petite they also have there own growth chart. For example Ivy is about average size for a baby with DS but at 8 months old she is still in about 3-6 month sized clothing....I’m okay with her staying tiny a little longer. 😊💙💛 #t21 #downsyndromeawareness #morealikethandifferent #downsyndrome #theluckyfew #instababy #ds

Our Daily Fred: Several years ago, our Sunday School lesson was from the book of James...on the power of the tongue. Our leader asked, "what are some words we should never say?" Someone piped up first thing, and mentioned a certain racial slur. They didn't say the word...we all knew. And we all agreed we should NEVER use ANY racial slurs. Our teacher asked, "what else?" One class member spoke up and said, "well, I'll tell you one we can't use, and it just burns me up..." and then she said it: THE word. I'm not gonna write it out. I can't. I won't. It's an intellectual slur #directedatpeoplelikemyson. We call it the "R" word. She said, "I am so sick of the PC (politically correct) police telling us what we can and cannot say. I believe in calling a spade...a spade." Oh yes...she did! I felt ALLTHEEYES on us. And, here's the thing: we had been in the class for probably 2 years at this time. They knew us...they knew the make-up of our family. She went on, "it's a 'medical term,' ya know. We tell our kids not to say it, and, when they do...they get in trouble in class. Teachers can get in BIG trouble if they say it. People can lose their friends, jobs and reputations for saying this word...and IT'S JUST RIDICULOUS." My heart was about to beat out of my chest. I knew my face was red. She continued..."the reason this word is upsetting to some people, is that we've given it too much power. By making it taboo, we've created this big 'thing' about it, so that now kids WANT to say it...just like they want to say all the cuss words." (WHAT?) She said that people have t-shirts saying we should get rid of this word (I have one)...and stickers and rubber bracelets saying we should get rid of this word (yep...have those, too). She said it made her "thankful" when she heard kids call each other this word...because it "lessened the power of it." (Ummm...no it doesn't). I thought I was going to jump out of my skin.

Day 14. Connor was a busy boy today. He wanted to be running around outside or being pushed around the neighborhood. Once we were inside, he threw a huge fit and I couldn't figure out what he wanted until I started to move toward the front door. Boy, did he perk right up! He also tried out his 2 new molars he just cut on some dog food 🤢 Maybe that's what I should start feeding him in order to get him to eat.. 🤷‍♀️ #Connor #adayinthelifeofconnor #downsyndrome #morealikethandifferent #downsyndromeawarenessmonth #ourfourleafclover

Day 14 of Ds Awareness Month 💙💛 . One of the characteristics you may have noticed is that little protruding tongue. The reason for this may be low muscle tone (remember when I mentioned hypotonia?), a larger tongue, or smaller mouth. I actually looked in my baby nieces mouth for a comparison 😁. . To work on the low muscle tone, I do different oral exercises on Lincoln and use the z-vibe from @arktherapeutic before every meal to get the muscles stimulated. I've seen a big difference since we've started doing it. Lincoln will also be starting speech therapy which I'm pretty excited about. . . . #teambabelincoln #babelincoln #downsyndrome #upsyndrome #t21 #trisomy21 #321 #nothingdownaboutit #morealikethandifferent #theluckyfew #dsdn #downrightperfect #changingthefaceofbeauty #homiewithanextrachromie #geneticallyenhanced #gerberphotosearch2018

La película se llama Pie Pequeño y se las recomiendo, tiene unos mensajes muy bonitos. Al final resaltan que la inclusión es posible y es posible gracias a cada uno de nosotros. Un simple gesto puede contagiar a muchas personas y cambiar nuestro mundo. ===================================== Octubre mes de la conciencia a la inclusión de personas con Síndrome de Down. #AmorIncondicional #YoQuieroYoPuedo #InclúyemeTeSorprenderé #the #RompiendoBarreras #EliminandoPrejucios #DejandoHuellas #trisomy21 #trisomia21 #t21 #downsyndrome #sindromededown #sd #noesunaenfermedad #panama #pty #Incluye #instababy #love #instagood #instapanama #morealikethandifferent #downsyndromeawareness #movie #smallfoot #piepequeño

This is just one of those typical weekends... Our house is destroyed, the littlest one has resorted to playing with a cat toy for entertainment 🙄, the music is blasting, we’re all dancing like a bunch of crazy people and yet.... life couldn’t be better. It’s times like this that we forget about Down syndrome. It just doesn’t mean anything or even cross our minds sometimes and that’s okay. ☺️ #sheisjustalittlegirl #lovelife #downsyndromeawarenessmonth #weforget #itsoktojustlivelife #dance - - - 💛👧🏻💙 #downsyndromeangel #savedownsyndrome #dschildrendeservelife #extracutechromosome #theluckyfew #t21 #downsyndrome #downrightperfect #trisomy21 #downsyndromeawareness #bornthisway #nothingdownaboutit #upsyndrome #specialneeds #changingthefaceofbeauty #t21love #promoteDSresearch #specialneeds #advocate #dontscreenusout #differentisbeautiful #morealikethandifferent #t21love

I CAN...make a difference! 💙💛 I tell my kids to spread love every day, and Liam always succeeds! He is always smiling, and he says hello to everyone he passes. This email from his teacher on Friday, made me smile! "We walked by a class of first grade students waiting in the hallway. As we went by, Liam gave a student a high five. Immediately, every student wanted to high five Liam and he had such a blast doing it. Liam is such a friendly kid...always waving to everyone we pass and saying hi. A teacher stopped us in the hallway the other day and told me every time she sees Liam, she can't help but smile. That smile of his is definitely contagious! We really enjoy having him with us every day." He IS making a difference. See, the kids that he goes to school with will grow up knowing a person who has Down syndrome, and that is a true gift. There are so many benefits of inclusion, for those with special needs and neuro-typical students. And he has that amazing, contagious smile, that can instantly turn a bad day around! On another note...Fall arrived in Pittsburgh! 🍁🍂🍃

We had so much fun at the Polish Festival in San Diego today! 🇵🇱❤️ . . Michael was a little overwhelmed when we first got there, since there were so many people and it was so crowded. But the music and especially pierogi calmed him down and he loved it 😋 . . For those that don’t know, our parents both immigrated from Poland! Michael and I were both born here, and we’re both bilingual. He understands both English and Polish really well 🤗

Down syndrome Awareness Month, Day 12, 13, & 14: Children with Down syndrome learn best in an inclusive learning environment, and typical children learn about diversity, kindness, and friendship at an early age. Inclusive classrooms teach and benefit ALL kids. ••We aren’t at this point yet, but when Easton does start school I will absolutely be pushing for as much inclusion for Easton as possible.

#14 Las personas con Síndrome de Down experimentan un atraso en el desarrollo cognitivo, pero el efecto suele ser de leve a moderado y el mismo no determina las capacidades y talentos que tiene cada persona. . No porque Sabi y sus amiguitos tengan la misma condición Síndrome de Down van a tener las mismas características, habilidades o retos. Por ejemplo Sabi dio sus primero pasos a los 16 meses pero fue hasta sus 2 años casi que empezó a caminar completamente sola y sin ayuda. Pero en cambio hay algunos de sus amiguitos que empezaron primero que ella como también hay otros que empezaron a casi 3 años. Cada individuo es único e irrepetible!!! . . #teamsabi16 #ds #dsdn #dsawareness #inclusion #downsyndromeisbeautiful #downsyndromerocks #t21 #theluckyfew #worthit #morealikethandifferent #changingthefaceofbeauty #ootd #nothingdownaboutit #t21 ##upsyndrome #321 #sindromededown #extrachromosomeextracute #trisomy21 #downsyndromeawareness #downrightperfect #savingdownsyndrome #savedownsyndrome #lifeisbetterwithyou #downsyndromeawarenessmonth

{Day 14} In the U.S. many people with Down syndrome complete high school, more are going on to a postsecondary education and a handful have even received graduate degrees. An increasing number of colleges and universities have programs that are specifically designed for differently-abled students. {globaldownsyndrome.org} #downsyndrome #morealikethandifferent #inclusion #provethemwrong #dsdn #college #education #worthy #able #quilt #vintage #uhoh #theluckyfew

Last night our neighborhood community held a Harry Potter night complete with a trunk-or-treat. Leslie has been planning her costume for weeks-she decided to go as a Hufflepuff student. I love how excited she was that the Sorting Hat knew to place her in Hufflepuff! Leslie is one of the most devoted HP fans I know. I asked her what she loved about Harry Potter. “I love the movies and Books and funny scenes . I love Fred and George and all the characters. The magic is so amazing and the story makes my heart happy.” Raise a glass of Butterbeer for Leslie! 100pts for Hufflepuff! #harrypotter #harrypotterparty #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawarenessmonth #hufflepuffpride #sortinghat #sharegoodness #butterbeer #t21love #badgerbadgerbadger #morealikethandifferent #lifeisbetterwithyou #theluckyfew

My big brother Jaxon is pretty much my hero. He gives the best hugs, let’s me sneak into his bed at night when I’m scared and is never too cool to snuggle with me. Luv you Jax! #lovejordan #alifelessordinarywithjordan #brothersandbestfriends #myhero #morealikethandifferent

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have the kindest, best brother: look what he built for me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One day, I said to my family that the teacher at school just told us about the tent of the Native Americans. In the week-end after, I got a nice surprise: My brother said to me that I was going to have a similar tent and I would see it for myself how it was built! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was very happy! It’s really great to sit in the tent, Lola, my doll also loved it! Then I wanted my best brother to also feel how we felt, so I crawled out to let him in. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Mummy said that I can learn things better when I can use as many senses as possible: Touch, Hearing, Sight, Smell & Taste like Felix, Belle, Luke, Ollie & Bud from “Nina & the Neurons”. Actually sitting inside a “tipi” which I saw (& helped, a bit) being built helped me learn about many things on top of learning about a tent that has similar shape to those used by the Native Americans. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love my brother, he’s the kindest, best brother! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #dsam #downsyndromeawareness #morealikethandifferent #whpkindness #toytipi #learningbydoing #downsyndromeawarenessmonth #bestbrother #theluckyfew #trisomy21 #buildatent #downsyndrome

✨Our very first #humanwithyou feature✨ • I believe YOUR story has power to heal, help, and inspire others. That’s why here at @humanwithyou we share vulnerable stories about being human. Join me in reading @kelseywarren18 story below. • “Going into college I had never really experienced anxiety, unless it came to things like tests.. One random day my sophomore year of college I had my first ever panic attack after the tiniest thing in my day went wrong. For months after that I was just doing my best not to freak out or worry so often, but that only did so much. I found my anxiety affecting my every day life and getting in the way of my completing simple tasks throughout my day. I remember hearing people around me, my friends, other students, and my family going through similar things so I did what I saw worked for them... praised the Lord, started doing yoga all the time, became a runner, began eating much healthier and doing almost anything to reduce my anxiety symptoms. All of those things I tried changed my life for the better, I began to focus on loving and taking care of myself much better. To this day, I still struggle with anxiety and it still affects my life almost daily. Since starting my journey of living with anxiety, I have learned many ways in which I can reduce and cope with what is going on in my head. I may be living with anxiety but it does not define me anymore, I am defined by who He says I am. I am loved, special, kind, called, fearfully and wonderfully made, unique, important and beautiful; don't forget you are too!” • Thank you for your bravery in sharing your story @kelseywarren18. It’s an honor being human with you!

Down syndrome awareness month day 13 . Ok so we had a busy day at a birthday party today and major house clean yesterday so we are a Little late on the update.... approx 50% of children born with Down syndrome are born with heart defects, this is why Bridget had been taken to NICU for the first 3 days of life, so they could monitor her and make sure all was well, we had been told about some heart problems before Bridget was born although we weren’t sure of what exactly, so when she arrived and we discovered she had DS and that she was beautifully pink and breathing on her own, it was such a relief. Although the picture looks scary it was 3 days being fed by tube, sleeping on a padded bed in a heated incubator, This little pet didn’t want for anything except Cuddles. The staff in #royaljubileematernityhospital were outstanding! Luckily for us Bridget had 2 vsd’s (tiny holes) in her heart one which closed at approximately 4 months and while the other has gotten significantly smaller we are hopeful it will close on its own too!! We attend cardio reviews regularly. In fact we have one tomorrow. So keep us in your prayers 🙏🏻 We have met so many other families of children with similar and also more severe heart defects with some requiring surgery, they are #heartwarriors #heartfamily #chdawareness #chdwarrior #downsyndromeawarenessmonth #downsyndrome #morealikethandifferent #upsyndrome #extraordinary #iamable

Wishing I could be at this year’s Buddy Walk for #downsyndromeawareness. My eyes have been opened to a whole community of people that deserve our support, love and inclusion. My heart has been tugged to find my own place in the Down Syndrome community, obviously starting with my niece, but also beyond. I have some ideas and look forward to experiencing #morealikethandifferent #teamchuck #charliemariekidwell

What did you think about people with disabilities before your child, your sibling, your friend, etc. with disabilities came into your life? Maybe you already knew that people with disabilities are just as valuable as anyone without disabilities. Maybe you didn't. If you didn't, do you see it now? How would it make you feel if people said that what you think now is irrelevant because of what you thought in the past? Everyone is always welcome at Save Down Syndrome- that includes people who didn't see the value of people with disabilities in the past, people who don't see it now, and people who sometimes doubt what they think. We are all only human, and the most important things we can do are love each other and help each other grow. We don't support Trump the president, we support Trump the human being who can grow and learn. We don't support Obama the former president, we support Obama the human being who can grow and learn. Our board has 5 members with Down syndrome, and 6 without Down syndrome. The 6 without Down syndrome have learned from the 5 with Down syndrome to see the humanity in people above anything else. That is why we, as Save Down Syndrome, truly do not care about politics, religion, etc. We just care about saving Down syndrome, and we do that by welcoming and loving all. 💙💛 #savedownsyndrome #advocacy #tellmewhatyoustandfor #disabilityrights #downsyndrome #specialneedsrights #morealikethandifferent #inclusionmatters #nonprofit #downrightperfect #theluckyfew #inclusion #21reasonswhy #ndss #ndsc #endlawsyndrome #spreadthewordtoendtheword #reecesrainbow #disabilityrightsinternational #imnotamememovement #organdiscriminationmovement #obama #trump #apolitical
