3:21 Day 4

Sundays are kind of a crazy day in our household because Travis is gone for about 75% of the hours the kids are awake.This makes for a long day for me, as I juggle both kids through all three meals, church, and rotating nap times. It doesn't leave me with a lot of free time to write!

So, today I encourage you to go read the stories of other families and people with Down Syndrome. The National Down Syndrome Society has launched a new campaign called "My Great Story." It's a place where you can read stories submitted by caregivers, advocates, and yes, even self-advocates. I've spent quite a few late night hours reading through some of the stories. You'll even notice a few stories by celebrities like Meredith Viera, Nancy O'Dell, and Chris Burke (That would be Corky, from "Life Goes On.").

There are numerous blogs out there written by parents who have children with Down Syndrome. Do some web surfing and see what you can come up with!

And as always, check out the NDSS and DSI for more information about World Down Syndrome Day on March 21st!
