8 More Days

I had tears today! Nathan and I took Felix to Kindergym together. During song time, Felix walked over to the box and got out a shaker out and gave it to Daddy, then he went back and got one for me too. Finally, he went and picked one for himself to use. He has never had the confidence to do it that many times, with so many children around. We were very proud! It got even better when the songs started. He actually stood in the middle of the circle and danced, and shook his shaker. My eyes are welling up now just thinking about it. It was such a precious thing to see him so caught up in the music and dancing, and oblivious to the other children dancing beside him. It's such a little thing, but to us it is huge!

I'm so excited that in 8 more days, it will be World Down Syndrome Day. It's the second year it has been officially recognised by the United Nations, which is really exciting! I have been working hard at planning a fundraiser to coincide with the day, to raise money for the Early Intervention class at Down Syndrome South Australia. Even though we haven't been able to take Felix to the Early Intervention class more than a few times, due to distance, we truly appreciate the amazing job they do to enhance the lives of little ones, with Down Syndrome. The times we have been there, it has been an incredible experience for us, and for Felix.

If you live locally and would like to join us to celebrate the lives of beautiful people, just like Felix, we would love you to come. I have attached a flyer about the day for anyone who is interested. If we have never met, please come and introduce yourself on the day. It would be great to meet you. If you can't make it, but would like to make a donation, please email me at for more information.
