one less

Friday is World Down Syndrome Day. All women (not just those over the age of 35) are now offered and encouraged to have prenatal testing done in an effort to expand the opportunity to terminate a potential "problem" pregnancy; DS being the most common of these problems.

Choice is a good thing. Let it be a fully informed one.

What a sad day when diversity is thwarted by our relentless pursuit of "perfection." How lucky we are to have received such a beautiful reminder of the incredible joy in a life less ordinary. We truly have one less life lost to uncertainty and one more miracle on this earth.

I made a little montage of our sweet Dawson; my little contribution in raising awareness. ^_^
