World Down Syndrome Day

March 21st, 2012 marks the 7th anniversary of World Down Syndrome Day and for the first time in 2012 this day will be officially observed by the United Nations!

In "Wordless Wednesday" style, I thought I'd offer you a couple photographs to share our day with you. Tune in later today for my regularly scheduled Mamatography post.

Family in NICUOur perfect little reason to celebrate the day!

SpencerI can't begin to express how perfect he is!
But if you're a mother, I think you understand.

Down syndrome is scientifically known as trisomy 21. It is caused when a person has an extra copy (for a total of 3) of the 21st chromosome. This is what makes 3/21 the perfect date for our celebration!
