31 for 21?

Grab This Button

Pretty funny, right? I haven't blogged in months and I think I can do 31 posts for the 21st chromosome to celebrate National Down Syndrome Month? Hm. Time will tell. But I'll give it a shot.

So, what do you want to know about Down syndrome?
(Just an FYI... tomorrow's post will include photos of the Step Up for Down Syndrome walk that was held in St. Paul yesterday)

Well, Jennie, I admire you for giving it a shot, and if you miss some days, don't worry about it. :)

I have learned a lot about Down syndrome from you and Micah - way more than I learned in my teaching classes. I appreciate that so much.

Here's my question - maybe too big of a question. You have talked about doctors who are working with outdated information, and misinformation, when they advise pregnant mommies who have unborn babies with DS, and you have talked about how few of these babies make it to birth because so many of the moms abort the babies. It breaks my heart.

So I was wondering, is there any campaign, or push to share accurate information with the doctors, or anything...to give the babies a chance to be born? Does that make sense?

Thanks for posting. :)
