Last year World DS Day kinda caught us unprepared to do anything big as a group. This year we provided buttons for folks to wear and share, but some members took it upon themselves to go a step further; to think GLOBALLY and act LOCALLY.
This was our first time celebrating as my baby Gracie was just born in December. Since she is not in school yet, our whole family dressed in blue and yellow. My older two daughters and I painted our nails blue and yellow too! When people asked my daughters about their nails, they took the opportunity to tell them that it was World Down Syndrome Day. They also told them about Gracie and what Down Syndrome is.
