To be honest, life is busier than I would like it to be. It has been one of the greatest challenges in returning to “real” life. Ben has yet to find substantial employment which means that I have been working…and doing graduate studies….and making a home. And it is hard to remember that it has been just 2 months since we have been back and in that time have moved houses, countries, started at new schools, new jobs, created a new life and that I might not be able to do all the things that I want to be able to do.
There is lots to share and lots to be said.
This month, in particular is Down Syndrome Awareness month for the National Down Syndrome Society just south of the border. Many woman are joining together to blog 31 for 21: they will blog everyday for 31 days to raise awareness about Down Syndrome because that is half the battle.
This is one area, where as much as I want to join in, I am going to leave it up to them but I encourage you to read. To make yourself aware. To celebrate being different. And to be ever so grateful for every good and perfect gift that God brings into our lives.
Down Syndrome Fact #1 Down Syndrome is not a disease. It is not contagious but the joy that my daughter has is….so WATCH OUT!
