This blog lets you keep up with the W family. Our three boys are John who is 17 and very into sports, Noah who is 14 going on 21 and is trying to keep up with his big brother and little Ben, who is the sweetest little 8 year old, who happens to have Down syndrome.
21st, is World Down Syndrome Day. This day was selected because Down
syndrome or Trisomy 21 happens when there are 3 copies of the 21st
chromosome. To celebrate and to help raise awareness please wear socks…BUT
NOT JUST ANY SOCKS…brightly colored socks, mismatched socks, long
socks, printed socks, 1 sock…maybe even 3 socks (or EXTRA socks) for 3
chromosomes. Just so long as they are socks which are on display and
people will ask you about. Take that moment to let someone else know about the special person in your life that has Down syndrome. Have Fun!
