I did it! I blogged something every day during the month of October for Down syndrome awareness! I feel pretty good about it; I feel like I touched on some topics that are important to me and my family, and I painted an honest picture of what it’s like to have a child with Down syndrome, at least for this mother and this family.
I hope the things I wrote about this month made a difference to someone. I hope this window into our life with Finnian cleared up misconceptions for some people, broadened the minds of some people, and maybe alleviated some fears of some new mother out there facing a diagnosis of Down syndrome for her child.
I’d love to hear from you if I’ve changed how you think about Down syndrome.
