World Down Syndrome Day!

Today being March (The third month) the 21st. 
It is World Down Syndrome Day
Isn't my sister Catie a dream!!

Trisomy 21 - having part or all of a third 21st chromosome.  And I love it!  Its another day in addition to the other 364 to celebrate Down Syndrome and my sweet sweet sister Catie.  Oh I love this lady.  She is by far one fo the funniest, sweetest, most loving and terrific people in the world!!!!!!  I feel so blessed to have her as my sister.  We have so many amazing memories together.  Not only was I blessed to have a sister so close in age but one that is so amazing and just perfect!  I always say that she took care of me spiritually- teaching me to have pure and perfect faith and how to love unconditionally among millions of other things and I that I was sent to take care of her physically- watch over her, protect her, stand up for her -ask my parents....sometimes I went a little overboard but I LOVE IT!!  She is incredible and although the word Down in Down syndrome solely has reference to the physician who first explained it.....there is nothing down about it!!!

Here she is lovin on my new baby.
She is such a great Aunt!

Celebrate the blessing that Down Syndrome is in your life today!!!
