Take a moment to check out Annie's blog.
She created a necklace for the IDSC
(International Down Syndrome Coalition for Life.)
It's a necklace to help raise awareness.
As it turns out, 90% of babies diagnosed with DS prenatally
IDSC has a mission.
They want people to know that ALL life is precious.
It is also a support system
for those that chose to end their pregnancy,
to educate and heal,
Down Syndrome is just a diagnosis,
it does not define the person.
We want to change steroetypes
about children with DS and their abilities.
We expect great things from our Ollie.
We are not setting any limitations.
Her life will have joy and purpose.
She is as worthy of life as anyone else.
She is different but by no means less.
She is going to shoot for the moon
and even if she lands in the stars instead,
it will be a life we celebrate.
She is a gift who just happens to have DS.
I am so proud of her and her mama.
