My boys don’t have Down syndrome when they’re eating at Wendy’s, their favorite restaurant!
The story linked below was forwarded to me through a yahoo group I belong to of families with multiples where one or more has Down syndrome… like me/mine. I’m linking it here because it was just too good not to share. I’d have reprinted it but Dave Hingsburger, blogger and advocate for those with disabilities, has a creative commons copyright on his blog… so I’m sending you directly over to him to read this extraordinary story… A story EVERY parent of a child with Down syndrome, every body whose life is touched by a child with Down syndrome and everybody who impacts the life of a child with Down syndrome should hear!
Inspired by the 31for21 Down Syndrome Blog Challenge and happiness-project.com, I began this blog in pursuit of my own happiness while raising my 3 children -- including identical twins with Down syndrome. On these pages, I endeavor to document the bits and pieces of my life that bring me the most happiness and keep me focused on all the positive stuff going on.
Advocacy, Angels and Random Happy Thoughts. These are the threads of happiness that are inextricably woven through the cloth of my life. Staying focused and writing about these things is what keeps me Walking on the Happy Side of Life. I'd love it if you would "Take A Walk on the Happy Side" with me.
