Instagram Public Photos with #downsyndrome

October is down syndrome awareness month. it is a month to spread awareness and acceptance of down syndrome while at the same time celebrating it. here is what i personally would like you to be aware of regarding down syndrome 💙💛 i’d appreciate it if you used people first language. it’s simple. all you need to do is put the word “girl”, “kid”, “baby”, “person”, etc. before the words “down syndrome”. just say, “child with down syndrome” instead of “down syndrome child.” this is because down syndrome does not define my child, it is just a small part of her.

don’t use the word “retarded”. when used, it is used mostly in a derogatory context, however the word is even being phased out of the medical community and stripped from government policies. it is offensive, especially to those who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.

my child is not suffering from down syndrome. she may have some extra medical issues or may be a little behind developmentally, but she will get to her milestones eventually. she is a happy baby and she’s well fed, has a roof over her head, and is very loved. in fact, studies have shown that 99% of individuals with down syndrome are happy with their lives.

my child has more potential than you know. people with down syndrome get an education, hold jobs, drive cars, get married, and own businesses.
down syndrome is a random occurrence. there are no known behavioral or environmental factors that cause down syndrome.
and how about awareness on the mom of a child with down syndrome…

i am not unhappy. i love my unique family.
sometimes i do get sad, like when she’s with her therapist and cries because it’s so much hard work just to do simple things like sitting up.

i’m busy taking my child to medical appointments and having therapists in my home and therefore have less time to be social these days. i really wish i had more time and hope that people understand.

Laura is all smiles for haloween! when we asked her what she wanted to dress up as, she said a bowl of guacamole... with a chip as a hat. not the weirdest costume we have ever seen 🤣

p.s. how cute is her painting clothes? ❤

what are your kids planning on dressing up as? #guacamole #apparentlyacostume #notsurehowtopullthatoff

#15weeks with this baby boy of mine💙 .

a few weeks ago (before i knew he was a boy), the lord gave me a word that gave me confidence in the genetic testing we had done and that he would be a boy. so when i got the call a week later that the tests came back “normal” and that he in fact was a baby boy, i was not surprised but still shocked at the same time. having two girls, we had been hoping and praying for a boy but not expecting it & having a child with down syndrome, the reality of genetic disorders is never absent from your mind .

we know still anything can happen, but i’m grateful for this baby boy regardless, and i’m soaking up every week of him in my belly (especially now that the nausea has somewhat subsided)! 😉 every time i think of him, i am reminded of how blessed i am that the lord has given me these children of mine. #babyswiftlet3 .

Someone left some artistic surprises on my phone :). i think we might have a photographer in the making!!! i haven’t done much for ds awareness month - but there are so many amazing people with ds out there sharing their talents and showing the world that you can’t count people out just because they are different! we follow this amazing young artist who was also adopted from eastern europe - just like kylie. you should follow her too! @sevymarieart :). maybe kylie’s budding photography skills will turn into a career for her! no limits!!! #photography #downsyndromeawarenessmonth #downsyndromerocks #theluckyfew #downsyndrome #downsyndromeadoption #dreams #nolimits #developingtalents

В старинной усадьбе порой можно найти удивительные штуки: старый колодец даёт большой простор воображению!
А вдруг это жилище чудовища, которое сейчас выскочит?.. Хорошо, что рядом верный друг, а в руках хорошая палка!🐕🐲

اگر صحنه‌ای را كه در آن هستيد دوست نداريد، اگر شاد نيستيد، اگر تنها هستيد، اگر وقوع حوادث را احساس نمی‌كنيد، صحنه را ترک كنيد، پرده‌ی جديدی بكشيد...
اطراف خود را با بازيگران جديدی پر كنيد، نمايشنامه‌ی جديدی بنويسيد.
اگر نمايشنامه‌ی شما خوب نيست، از صحنه خارج شويد و نمايشنامه‌ی ديگری بنويسيد.
ميليون‌ها نمايشنامه در دنيا وجود دارد، به تعداد آدم‌هایی كه در آن زندگی می‌كنند.
و در صحنه ای بلند داد بزن :((‏يك شب ميرم قدم بزنم و ديگه برنميگردم.))
