This month is Down Syndrome awareness month. I know this because in this past year I have reconnected with a long time family friend RK, and her oldest daughter (she's pregnant with daughter number 2, yay!) has Down Syndrome. RK started a blog for sweet Braska when Braska was just a teeny tiny baby with a great big heart problem - it kept everyone posted as to what trials were ahead and also informed us of the countless successes that tough little Nebraska fought her way through. And I'm still keeping up with Braska, and in doing so, it has also flung open a door allowing me to get to know (as much as you can through blogs) countless sweet, adorable, funny, feisty, strong-willed, babies, toddlers and preschoolers that also happen to have Down Syndrome and their lives are too awesome to miss. So now I am a baby junky and love watching these cute kiddos grow up in front of my eyes....on my computer screen.
So check out Braska and her blog, and then go to the right hand side of her blog and click on some links to meet some more neat families...and while your at it click here and check out Parenting Magazines galleries of pictures of these babies....Braska is #13 in the 3rd gallery of photos and she is sooooo cute!
