It is an exciting day around here…and not just for me, but for those of us hoping to raise awareness for individuals with Down syndrome.
Today, I am a guest columnist in the Florida Times-Union telling Molly’s story and my journey as a special needs mom. And while I’m honored to have my work printed in the paper, I’m ecstatic about the awareness and knowledge it shares with others that might not be familiar with Down syndrome or the life of a special needs mom.
I think Down syndrome is something not many people know much about, unless they have a personal connection. I’m excited to have the opportunity to use my “voice”.
Today’s post in the newspaper was a guest columnist opportunity. I’m hoping that I’ll have the opportunity to share more of our journey with readers.
And who knows… maybe this is just the beginning of a powerful movement of spreading awareness throughout Northeast Florida and beyond! I want everyone to know that Down syndrome isn’t scary…it’s just a part of what makes our community a better place!
