World Down Syndrome Day 2014

March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day (chosen for the trisomy of the 21st chromosome).  It's a global awareness day in which we advocate for the rights, inclusion, and well being of individuals with Down syndrome. 
Here at CCE, every day is an opportunity to raise awareness about Down syndrome.  We are blessed to have two individuals with Down syndrome in our family.  Leanne and Josie enhance our lives immeasurably with their vibrant personalities, unforgettable humor, and loving spirits.
Today, and every day, we celebrate Leanne and Josie and the joy they bring to our world.  In honor of World Down Syndrome Day, here is a little video clip that sums it up pretty perfectly!

Happy World Down Syndrome Day!


  1. I love them. And love Leanne's hair in that top pic!

  2. The key word is individuals. That's what I took away from this post.
