I have to admit that prior to Noah being born I had no idea that March 21st is World Down Syndrome Day, so don’t feel bad if you didn’t know either. But it is. And if you will give me about 3 minutes of your time, I’ll tell you what it’s all about.
Noah and I put together a short video to tell you a little bit about World Down Syndrome Day and why the date 3:21 is significant. I hope you find it informative and enjoyable! And hey if not, no worries. You’ll get to see a cute little boy for a few minutes that I’m sure will brighten up your day. So it’s a win either way.

By the way the cool shirt Noah is wearing in the video was given to us by our friends at the National Down Syndrome Society when we visited their offices in New York a few months ago. You can pick one up for yourself from Rhyme Clothing.10% of every shirt purchased goes to the National Down Syndrome Society to further Down Syndrome Awareness! Pretty cool, huh?
If you are new to the world of Down syndrome, welcome.

If you are raising a child with Down syndrome I hope you will take a minute to share this post with someone in your life who isn’t. Hopefully in doing so they will learn more about Down syndrome, and how this story isn’t a sad one. But a very beautiful one.
