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!
