The day after D Day

Well I made it through D day and although there were inevitably a few tears, actually it was the best birthday I've had in the past 20 years, thanks to so many wonderful friends.

So many people took the time to send me Birthday Wishes and messages of support.  My Facebook page was busy all day with posts from friends worldwide, many of whom I only know through online networks, but I felt surrounded by the love and support of so many people, that even without the pink hair it would have been an awesome day. 

I want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has got involved in the Daniel Green Memorial Celebration, whether it be by donating or sharing his story, I hope that the ripple effect will have meant it reached beyond my circle of DS friends and has enlightened others as to the inner beauty of individuals with Down's Syndrome.

If it has changed just one persons thinking then it has been worth it and I cannot ask for a better tribute to my son than that.

I also need to say a special thanks to Beeunique for donating the hair dye and Novel T's for doing a great job on my polo-shirts and with free postage.  

The celebration (and my pink hair) carries on until Daniel's angel anniversary on November 13th when I will no doubt be providing the entertainment at the Down's Heart Group conference.  So it's not too late to make your donation if you haven't had time before, just visit my Everyclick page or send a cheque (payable to Down's Heart Group )to the address on the website.
