Today I asked the kids to write about what Down Syndrome means to them, the kids coming, Julianne, or anything about Down Syndrome in their journals for a homeschool assignment. I haven't got to read them all yet and I'm sure that some of my kids will make it an issue of some kind or not want to share, but Dayton did a great job and was glad to let me share HIS view.
(If you'd like to see Julianne and Dayton together in a video then HERE is a post of that.)
"Down Syndrome means alot to me. When I think about Down Syndrome, I think of a cute little boy or girl laughing. Alot of people think Down Syndrome is something that makes them stand out in a bad way and they will never be able to "blend in". But they stand out in a good way, by being special and extremely cute. They can do everything we can eventually because they are so smart. They are also the cutest little things in the world. Down Syndrome is the best syndrome you can have. Down Syndrome is awesome!"
