October is also....

Down Syndrome Awareness Month!  I only know this because my little cousin Alayna has Down Syndrome.  Which is a bit sad really that there are SO many companies and organizations involved in Breast Cancer Awareness but you don't hear too much about DS Awareness.  So with this little blog post I hope to help bring awareness to these wonderful children.

Through Alayna (and her wonderful mom Rochelle and their blog ) I've learned a lot about Down Syndrome and that she's just a wonderful little girl who happens to have Down Syndrome.  Another truly inspiring family that I was 'introduced' to through Rochelle, has adopted two children with Down Syndrome, you can read about their daily antics here.

They are both amazing and inspirational families, who we can all learn some life lessons from.  And someday I hope to get to meet Miss Alayna in person :)
