The proud mothers of these beautiful girls have been asked to do a presentation on Down Syndrome at the Virginia General Federation of Women's Clubs state convention on August 15th. I would like to solicit the help of my blogger friends for part of my presentation. If you would, please leave me a comment regarding the following:
If you had the opportunity to inform the general public about raising a child with Down Syndrome, what would you want them to know? What would you tell them about your life? Your child? Your experience? Any presumed misconceptions you would want to address?
Most of the women that we will be presenting to won't have much (or any) knowledge about Down Syndrome. My friend Pam and I want to use this opportunity not only to educate the women on facts, we want to stress that with our kids, the blessings far outweigh the hardships.
Your input would be greatly appreciated.
