3/21| March 21st
Down syndrome is a condition characterized by a third copy of the 21st chromosome so it only makes sense that on the 21st day of the 3rd month of the year, we celebrate World Down Syndrome Day. It is a global day of awareness, observed by the United Nations. It's a day in which we celebrate our loved ones with Down syndrome. We advocate for their rights to education, healthcare, and inclusion.
Today (and every day) we celebrate Leanne and Josie and the profound impact that they have had on our lives. They have enriched our world with sincerity and love. They have taught us valuable lessons far beyond what we can learn in school. They have made us better people and for that, we are eternally grateful.
Happy World Down Syndrome Day!
