Have you ever heard the saying, “Down Syndrome is a Journey I Never Planned, BUT I Sure Do LOVE My Tour Guide”. I LOVE that saying. <3

 

This saying speaks so much truth to me…

 

On September 17, 2011, I gave birth to my 7th child, Holly Grace. I had a very healthy pregnancy. The ultrasound I had in May came back normal. After I gave birth, all of her brothers and sisters were in awe of their new sister. Then life took a twist and the doctor came in and asked them to all leave the room. She needed to speak to me alone. The doctor shared she had concerns about Holly being born with down syndrome and suggested testing to confirm the diagnosis. I was speechless and numb. I heard of down syndrome but knew nothing more than that. A week later, I received the official diagnosis. Holly was born with down syndrome  She was born with an extra chromosome, a third copy of the 21st chromosome. Although she has had and will have obstacles ahead, she sees the positive in this world. She sees the good and beauty in this world. She loves all people. She has brought joy and happiness to our family and to others.

She is unique. She loves to give hugs and to touch your hand. She loves to dance. She is our gift. We have been given a journey we didn’t plan. Holly is our PERFECT tour guide. She is downright PERFECT!

To celebrate World Down Syndrome Day, I created a video to share Our Journey with Our Tour Guide, Holly.

 

 

Also, in celebration of World Down Syndrome Day, 3 – 21 and Down Syndrome Awareness, I created printables our family has used and would like to share with you, your family, and friends.
