Commit to blogging in your blog everyday for the month of October (which is Down syndrome Awareness Month).
And then...um...blog in your blog everyday for the month of October!
You can choose to write about life with DS or...not. It's up to you. But if you at least mention the challenge and start writing EVERYDAY it's bound to go NOTICED. Personally, I find that I go back and forth, sometimes I write about DS because hey, it's a part of our life, and sometimes I don't, because hey, guess what? It's just a part of our life!

Lara, 40 year old wife to Michael (married 17 years, best years of my life)! Mom to 4 wonderful kids! Taylor, 11, Mallory, 8, Madeline, 6, and Parker born 5/23/09. We found out after delivery Parker has Down syndrome and a complete AVSD. He was scheduled to have open heart surgery at 4-6months, but God intervened! His surgery was postponed until July 2010 and God healed his VSD hole in the process. So, on July 20, 2010, Parker had open heart surgery to repair his transitional AV canal defect. He was in ICU for less than 24hours and home in 72 hours. We never looked back! I own an Executive Search Firm focused on Accounting/Financial placement (used to work in Big 4). Actively involved in my kids activites and school; all are competitive swimmers and son Taylor plays tournament baseball. Girls do tumbling as well. Avid runner and boot camp fanatic. Used to be a competitive figure skater growing up. LOVE to shop, ebay/etsy crazed, addicted to Starbucks non-fat lattes, a child of the KING, thankful that we are saved by faith and grace!
