3-2-1 … World Down Syndrome Day

321I have only met you a few times in person,

But I feel like I know you.

I see your parents’ Facebook posts.

The pictures

The videos

The fun

I see the beautiful support system you have.

Mom and Dad

Brothers

Sister

Grandparents

Aunts

Uncles

Cousins

Friends

All love you!

Your laughter makes me smile.

Your energy lifts my spirits.

Your enthusiasm for life inspires me!

Today is your day.

World Down Syndrome Day

3-2-1

Today is the day you can educate us and make us aware.

Your gene structure may be slightly different,

But we are all the same.

We laugh.

We cry.

We sing.

We dance.

We jump for joy.

We eat oatmeal and pancakes, your favorite!

We love.

We matter.

 Thank you for brightening my days.

Thank you for helping me understand.

Thank you for making a difference!

    Your poem is a lovely tribute and a reminder that we are all the same where it matters most.
