Friday is World Down Syndrome Day

Friday, 3/21 is World Down Syndrome Day. This day was chosen because people with Down syndrome have 3 copies of chromosome number 21. This year the theme for March 21, 2008 is "Aim High Enough", to continue creating awareness about Down syndrome and promote acceptance of diversity.

Thanks for letting us all know about the 21st. Is there any kind of event planned locally at which the general public can participate?

I hope you don't mind me listing your blog in my post - but I enjoy reading about your family.
