Every Face

October has become, for us, a month of trying to increase awareness for Down Syndrome. We are joined by many others with the same goal in mind.  But even as a common cause unites us all, we would like to remind you that we are many faces.  Down syndrome does not have just one face, one personality, one sameness.  Neither does any other group, whether social, religious, ethnic, or political.

Every group is made up of individuals, and all individuals have a unique story.  We live our own story; others live theirs.  And in the telling and the mingling, we learn and change and grow.

Please join us.

...I am the only one that I can be
That is something beautiful
I see the world like nobody else can see
I am the someone that nobody else can be...

I'm only human just like anyone
But I'm the only me under the sun
Just like a snowflake, no two are the same
And there's unity in our individuality
I'm perfect just being me...

My mama was sure glad that I waan't twins! But sometimes when my fibromyalgia flares up I wish I had a twin to take half of it! Believe me, your family is doing a crowd's share of making a difference! You have my vote!
