March 21st - World Down Syndrome Day

Well it's been so long since I managed to post.  Life has been busy especially getting to grips with my mum's dementia and her having to into a home, but I also fitted in another trip to Nigeria and a few other things, including meetings regarding Safe and Sustainable, the proposed changes to Children's Congenital Cardiac Services in the UK which I really should post about soon.

Anyway, hopefully things will settle down a little soon and I can pay more attention to my blogging, but in the meantime I cannot let such a special event as World Down Syndrome Daye pass without at least making a brief post in recognition of all the wonderful individuals with Down's Syndrome that have touched my life over the past 21 years and of course their wonderful families and carers.  To celebrate the wonderful enrichment they bring to our world, I put together a photo montage that I hope you will enjoy and share.

To coincide with World Down Syndrome Day, I would also like to announce the official launch of Down Syndrome Nigeria Support the new UK charity that I am involved with whose aim is to raise awaress of the situation for children and young people with Down's Syndrome in Nigeria and to raise much needed funds to support the work of the Down Syndrome Foundation Nigeria.
