31 for 21
October is Down Syndrome Awareness month. Many bloggers are blogging all 31 days to raise awareness. (The 21 refers to the bonus chromosome found in people with Down Syndrome which is also called Trisomy 21). You can find them here.
Though Aidan doesn’t have Down Syndrome, these moms are still my people. There is a connection among moms of kids with disabilities and commonalities in our challenges. I think it’s fair to say we rejoice in the much “smaller” things in life, we find strength we didn’t know we had, and we face life with a sometimes dark sense of humor.
