I don't suppose there are many readers of this blog who don't know my daughter, Meg, has Down's Syndrome, but some will have forgotten, and some might be new visitors.
Down's Syndrome is also known as Trisomy 21 - this is based on the fact that people with DS have 3 chromosones instead of 2 on the 21st pair. So for the past seven years or so, 21st of March - using the numbers 21 and 3 in the calendar - has been recognised as World Down Syndrome Day.
The idea is to raise awareness and reduce ignorance and discrimination.
So if you would like to know a little more about this condition, then feel free to ask and I'll do my best to enlighten you.
Alternatively, to find the posts I've written about DS over the years, then please click on this sentence.
Down's Syndrome - it's not half as scary as you think...
