31 for 21 Blog Challenge


October is Down Syndrome (Trisomy 21) Awareness month and after much contemplation I excitedly joined the 8th annual 31 for 21 Blog challenge. In all honesty I was a bit hesitant to participate in this blog challenge because I do not want people to look at Evan and see Trisomy 21 and ultimately that is the reason why I chose to do the challenge; I want the world to know that I will not allow a diagnosis define who Evan is or who he can be come. Evan is an amazing 10 month old boy with a radiant warrior spirit who happens to have an extra copy of chromosome 21. Trisomy 21 does not make Evan less than and it is not something that I want him to be cured of because he is perfectly and wonderfully made just the way he is!

The 31 for 21 challenge is to blog for 31 days for T21 during the month of October.I’m in, are you! I sure hope you will stay with me on this journey!

Since it is techincally October 2nd I will do another post tomorrow! I tried to get my first day done but as soon as I sat down to type the beep beeps started and I had to adjust Evan’s oxygen and positioning! Here’s to the 31 to 21 Blog Challenge! I have some fun things to share and not every post will be about Trisomy 21. The challenge is just to blog every day!

    You don’t have to worry about a diagnosis defining who Evan is. The little fella has already told the world he is a radiant warrior spirit with something extra. Evan will never be less than!!!!! Our God made him just the way he is and we (anyone who knows him) would not want it any other way. He makes me smile everyday when I look at his pictures. He has changed who I am in a way I never thought possible and you have been an inspiration to so many…you have no idea. He is just who he needs to be and he is with the ones that love him the most…that is what will define him. I love, love, love you all!!!

    Yes, i say Evan is amazing. He’s a unique child, one of a kind with his own radiant warrior spirit who smiles all the time because he was touched God and selected by Him personally to be a part of our family. He’s beautiful and precious to me. He’s one of my grandsons. I love them both with all my heart! I’ve used quite a few adjectives here to tell what I feel for Evan. I would never let a diagnosis define who he is to me…he is very special to me. I look forward to watching him heal and grow…grow to be whomever he wants. I’m proud of him already! (All my friends and family know about him.)

    Yes, I would be more than happy to join you on the journey 31 for 21 for the Down’s Syndrome Awareness blog challenge. (I think I have a few days to catch up on and I dont type so well anymore at least not on this nook.)
