Down Syndrome - @charlies.way

"Down syndrome advocacy and awareness is extremely important to me. When Charlie was born, we had no idea she had an extra chromosome and honestly we didn't know a thing about Down syndrome and what it would mean. Having the doctor's deliver her diagnosis unenthusiastically didn't help either. Now, after living with Down syndrome and being apart of such an amazing community for the past four years I know better. I know that my daughter is literally more alike than she is different and I wouldn't change her even if I were given the chance. Awareness is so important because other people who aren't familiar with Down syndrome (like I once was) should know that Down syndrome isn't synonymous with excluded and it doesn't mean "less than". We should embrace everyone who is differently abled and strive to get to know them in the same manner that we do other typical individuals." @charlies.way
