World Down Syndrome Day

There are days when I feel this pressure {completely self-imposed} to be the one with all the answers about Down syndrome. World Down Syndrome Day is one of those's today, by the way. This interview with a 29 year old woman is beautiful, and so much like that of any single 29 year old woman that I know. And that's the point.

Ella is more alike than she is different.
This is the single most important thing that I want to remind myself today.

Happy World Down Syndrome Day...I think ice cream is in order.
Or maybe wedding cake?


  1. Beautiful! Thanks Kimberlee!

  2. Wow....thanks for sharing Kimberlee....brought tears to my eyes thinking about how happy she is....just like any normal 29 year old! I'm sure when you see things like that you think about how life will be like for Ella when she is that are right....more alike than different! Oh, and I say you should find some wedding cake to have today....yummmmmy!

  3. Awww, Kimberlee ... I loved her! 'More alike than different' - I love that & totally agree ... thanks for sharing!

  4. What a great video, Kimberlee! Loved her! A friend brought your blog to my attention, so I've bookmarked you. Please consider joining a Facebook group I started for family and friends of loved ones with Down syndrome. There you can share your experiences, provide support, and promote your blog. Hope you'll join us, I'll watch for your request!

  5. I sat for a while and watched a view more videos. It made me smile and laugh to see the joy in the young people's lives. I can see Ella doing a "spot" for them in the future!
