Moving from awareness to acceptance...
It dawned on me that I linked to this on FB, but then didn't talk about it here!
Beyond Awareness: National Down Syndrome Acceptance Month
The author talks about there being awareness out there now. I do think that's true, or we wouldn't be seeing all these stories on the national and nightly news. The author challenges you to move beyond awareness and into acceptance! If you are uncomfortable around someone with Down syndrome - go out of your comfort zone and meet an individual with DS. Talk with them and get to know them! If you are already comfortable with someone - then find opportunities to share with them - teach, hire, ask!
