World Down Syndrome Day has come around once more and I’m thrilled to see how high profile it has become. More so, it’s lovely to see how supportive people are towards people with DS and read families individual stories. It’s very heart-warming and inspiring.
We’re wearing our odd socks with pride today!
George is 3 today.
We are so proud to see how well he is doing. He’s healthy, happy and loving life. Enjoying his time at pre-school and making new friends. He’s come a long way since being the poorly new born who needed surgery at 3 months.
As a family we’ve come a long way too, not just coming to terms with having a child with additional needs, but embracing it and him and celebrating every milestone and achievement all the more.
So Happy Birthday George. One day you’ll read all of this and know just how much we love you.
George’s support group has its Christmas Fair soon and we are looking for exciting raffle prizes.
If you are able to donate any new toys, games, booze, gift vouchers, day out experiences or anything else suitable, we’d be so grateful.

A big thank you to the lovely friends and family who sponsored my run today. I made it around the course in 2hrs 13mins and raised over £600 for the NeLincs Downs Syndrome support group.
George started pre-school last week and he is loving it.
He marches in, without looking back and has a brilliant time playing with the toys, instruments and interacting with the staff and the other kids there.
He’s come so far and we are very proud of him.
Whilst you’re here, a quick reminder – I’m running a half marathon this weekend on behalf of George’s support group. Any donations are really appreciated, thank you x
First ever trip to the cinema to watch The Incredibles 2 with George’s support group was…incredible. He sat loving the film for a solid two hours.
George finally put together climbing the steps and going down the slide. Small things are big things!
