Down Syndrome Awareness Month

October is Down Syndrome Awareness month. Over the years, I have had the pleasure to work with many individuals with Down Syndrome and I have learned so much from them. Among the most important things is the fact that they are more like us than not. One young lady, Rachel, has found a special place in my heart. She and her mother are advocates of inclusion for individuals with Down Syndrome. Check out this video that Rachel was in:

Also, be sure to check out Rachel’s mom’s blog, The Sassy Southern Gal.

Thanks for reading!
