World Down Syndrome Day

Today is World Down Syndrome Day, a day when advocates and families around the world celebrate those who have Down syndrome and raise awareness about this genetic condition.  March 21st (3/21) was chosen to signify the 3 copies  (instead of the usual 2) of chromosome 21, which are present in individuals with Down syndrome. 

IDSC for Life has put together this beautiful photo montage of children and adults with Down syndrome.  Enjoy!
