Be Inspired!

A few days back, I blogged about the "Disappearing Babies" article and one particular commenter's horrible, ignorant response.

The BabyCenter Down Syndrome Community and one particular mother took it upon herself to construct a video.  A video of all of our children with DS.  One hundred beautiful, amazing children.

As it stands with the current testing, only 8% of parents continue pregnancy with a prenatal diagnosis of Ds.  Watch the video.  Be inspired.  Then take away 92 of those kids.

Our little Ellie Bellie Bear is seen at 1:40.

All I ask is that you pass on this video.  If it can change just one person's view on our children with designer genes. . . That is all it takes to be an advocate.  Share the love, share the video.  Lily's mother truly is an advocate and an inspiration.

Worthy Of Life Video

In case you are wondering, yes, I did cry again while reading her blog and again while watching the video.
