My Journal - Week 32 (27Mar10)
I found another really special message that sums up pretty well everything I say and advocate about regarding Down syndrome. I really like what this author and mom (Stephanie) has to say, and her insight is simple and straightforward. It's neat, concise and to the point. Above all else, it's what I wish everyone could read.
You can read it here: http://www.simplymodernmom.com/2010/03/simply-said-stephanie-about-down-syndrome/
She tells everyone in a simple way what the "Top five truths about Down syndrome" and "Five ways to value people who have Down syndrome". I loved it so much that I felt it should be shared as much as possible.
I hope you enjoy her work as much as I did. She is also the author of a book called "Understanding a Down syndrome Diagnosis" which focus on a prenatal diagnosis and gives excellent resource information and as she puts it "a glimpse of the lives led by people with Down syndrome". I wish I had heard of this book when we learned of Hunter's prenatal diagnosis. It probably would have saved me a lot of unnecessary filtering through terrible and outdated information on the Internet, and in the bookstores.
