What does that mean? It means we are celebrating life with Ds! Thirty-One is for the number of days in October and Twenty One is because people with Down syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st chromosome. It also means that you are going to be seeing a lot of bloggers posting for 31 straight days. That is a lot of writing and a lot of reading.
Join me in 31 for 21. If you have any questions about Ds, feel free to email me or leave a comment. Happy Down Syndrome Awareness Month!
Future posts will discuss the history of Down syndrome, Fun-Facts, Ds health and other related issues, inspiring stories, and suggestions from The Chronicles of EBB readers.
Fun Fact: March 21, 2006 marks the very first World Down Syndrome Day.
