Mia at just over 2 months old 😭 this actually doesn't seem real haha. Look at those skinny little legs! What I would do for a cuddle with tiny Mia, looking at this picture I can almost smell her little new smell that she had 😍
MI PROFE.- Eva fue mi primera profesora y con la que sigo manteniendo una relación muy especial. 😍 Recuerdo que cuando llegué a la guarde era muy pequeñita y sólo me mantenía sentada.👶🏼 Es importante que las personas confíen en ti, en tus cualidades y te den el apoyo suficiente para seguir adelante. 💪 Ella aprendió conmigo lo que es el Sindrome de Down 💙💛 y supo sacar lo mejor de mí. Yo la quiero un montón y sé que ella a mí también. 💕 ¡Gracias Eva por todo lo que me enseñaste! Cómo es la vida, ahora soy yo la que enseño algunas cosas a tu hija, jajaja ¡Feliz viernes amgos!🤗 @irma.pct #elcuadernodenoa #lifeisbetterwthdown . . #downgirl #familydown #familiadown wn #downfamily #downlovers #downrightperfect #downloversquedejanhuellas #amorsindromededown #sindrome21down #sindromededown #sindromedown #downaddicts #vivircondown #dsawareness #minibloggersdown #changingthefaceofbeauty #savedownsyndrome #masupquedown #nothingdown #downsyndromeawareness #downmagazine #cromossomo21 #cromossomodoamor #differentcapabilities #downsyndromerocks #morealikethandifferent #theluckyfew #downsyndromecutie #downmagazine
Woke up to rain today ☔️ (which i’m secretly happy about! Chloe - not so much 🤣) so I thought a wee wintery #flashbackfriday seemed appropriate 🍁🌧 A little 2 year old Chloe here, wrapped up perfectly for the typical Scottish weather 💙 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #zebedeemodel #zebedeemanagement #teamzebedee #childmodel #childmodelsearch #minimodel #kidstagram #instakids #kidsfashion #kidswinterfashion #minifashionista #downsyndrome #disabledmodel #differentlyabled #downsyndromemodel #designergenes #t21 #morealikethandifferent #changingthefaceofbeauty #thisgirlcan #theluckyfew #wouldntchangeathing #iamable #nothingdown #dsdn #amorsindromededown

Her new uniform at new school. For us ; parents of a kid with down syndrome, it’s such a pride to see our special kid can attend a regular school. After observed, this girl ; who has sunshine in her eyes could join #stnicholas school and got the same treatment as the other kids. Yes, she is soooo happy. Look at that smile! 😘 • #lifeisbetterwithyou #beautifulgirl #downsyndromeawareness #upsyndrome #downsyndromecuteness #downsyndromerocks #trisomy21 #nothingdownaboutit #downrightperfect #theluckyfew #happygirl #happylife #downsyndromerock #kidsgram #downsyndrome #morealikethandifferent #wouldntchangeathing

Don't mess with a mama bear and a papa bear! We have never really had to fight for Liam's rights before, but apparently now is our time. Without going into too much detail, what our school district promised us for Liam's year in Kindergarten has completely changed, and his rights are being challenged. Apparently they changed Least Restrictive Environment to MOST Restrictive Environment, and went back approximately 30 years. Their "groundbreaking" special education plan should alternately be titled segregation. I'm always laid back and kind, and I don't create conflict unless necessary. But tomorrow morning, I am unleashing my fury. Liam will get to be in an inclusive classroom with an aide as we were promised, and as recommended by his current team. Yes, he will be with "kids of his kind." And by "kids of his kind" I mean human beings who are 5 and 6 years old. IF they refuse to give us that, they will be paying to send him to a school district that can. I love our district, so this is truly heartbreaking. Thankfully, we have an incredible army on our side. 💙💛

We are hanging out in the emergency room while they run labs. Emily has been throwing up for about a week now and today she has had no appetite and was very sluggish. We got home from her swallow study and she had a fever of 103.6 and her cardiologist had me being her in for labs right away. We need to keep any bacterial infection away from her heart. ❤️ I’ll update again when labs come back.

The reality of being a parent of a special little girl such as her is that I will have to be on full alert for many years when it comes to where she is at and what she is doing. Unlike most “typical” children she will not grow out of her fearlessness, her lack of boundaries and her #toddlertude defiance anytime soon. She is always 100mph and has little fear of the unknown. Sometimes she surprises me and I can see that she acknowledges danger or her limitations, but it’s rare. Most times, I have to keep a very close eye on her and keep up with her because if I don’t I will lose her or she will hurt herself. I am not complaining- just wanting to share the minor struggles that exist for #specialneedsparents and let the ones out there who experience the same thing know that you are not alone. 😘 #shesarunner #reallife #roadid #worthit #dontloseher - - - 💛👧🏻💙 #downsyndromeangel #savedownsyndrome #dschildrendeservelife #extracutechromosome #theluckyfew #t21 #downsyndrome #downrightperfect #trisomy21 #downsyndromeawareness #bornthisway #nothingdownaboutit #upsyndrome #specialneeds #changingthefaceofbeauty #t21love #promoteDSresearch #specialneeds #advocate #dontscreenusout #differentisbeautiful #morealikethandifferent #t21love

“My name is Rina and I want to share my story. I was born with cerebral palsy. For all my life I was hearing something like 'Oh, what did God punish this girl's family for? What a grief! What a curse!" Currently I am 24 years old and I can stand up and speak for myself and everybody who is born different - God did not create us as a punishment! God has a special mission for us - we are little lighters, born to light up the room when we come in! Each of us is a blessing, not a curse!” ❤️✨ @rinalibelle #IAMABLE #cerebralpalsy #extraordinary
Oh my babies. Nova is growing up so fast, and Wynter goes from kicking, pushing, and snatching toys from him to giving him hugs and kisses.

Our sweet princess is out of surgery and resting now. The surgery went well....onto the next phase....recovery. ❤️ 🙏#heartwarrior #ds #ivyvieths #nothingdownabouther #morealikethandifferent
Rory worked on her gross motor skills outside again today! She practiced taking steps up & down on the curb, & walking on uneven ground. We’re also working on coming when I call for her (that’s a major work in progress), because right now she takes off if she has the chance to & she doesn’t understand how dangerous that can be. After she got her workout in, she got some chalk time in before the heat was too much for us. The last two photos just made me laugh. She looks like she’s taking a sip of her water (she wasn’t actually drinking, hopefully someday!) while getting ready to talk about her fitness routine. :) . . . . . . . #downsyndrome #downrightperfect #theluckyfew #dsdn #physicaltherapy #getoutside #documentyourdays #toddlersofig #morealikethandifferent

Meet Becca, one of our live-in house assistants! "In my time at L’Arche I’ve learned the importance of slowing down. I’m a very punctual person and find myself rushing around to get from place to place. L’Arche has taught me to take my time and to stop being so stressed out about “getting there”, which gives me more room to notice the wonderful things that are happening around me."

We’re getting ready for a big family camping trip soon and this Wil Can Fly photo comes to mind. We have only been camping one other time with Wil and we had a scary moment where he booked it for the forest. We are all really excited for the trip but a little nervous about our little runner taking off. If you have any suggestions for a good GPS tracking watch or any other tips for keeping little runners from getting lost in the great outdoors we would love to hear them 😁 @nikkizl #wilcanfly #tbt #dadlife #downsyndromelove #downsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #downsyndromerocks #t21 #trisomy21 #upsyndrome #morealikethandifferent #nothingdownaboutit #theluckyfew #mystory #babiesofinstagram #changingthefaceofbeauty #instababy #toddlersofinstagram #downrightperfect #instadad

Sometimes being Lindie’s mama means intentionally working with her to help her do things other kids do without thinking. It doesn’t mean she has any less value or worth. She’s still going to do those things— just in her own time and at her own pace. Take clapping, for instance. The smile and the laugh at the end is worth it all. 💗 #littlelindiefern #lindiefernmilestones #theluckyfew . . . . #shouttheirworth #downsyndrome #upsyndrome #downsyndromeawareness #downrightperfect #morealikethandifferent #homiewithanextrachromie #lifewithDs #lifeisbetterwithyou #t21 #mamarazzi #specialneeds #specialneedsmoms #joyfulmamas #honestmotherhood #motherhoodrising #motherhoodunplugged #rawmotherhood #downsyndromelove
Repost from @chloe_zebedeemodel using @RepostRegramApp - So in May, me and Chloe travelled down to London to meet with photographer @sophiemayanne to take part in @behindthescars_ As written by Sophie: “Behind the scars is a photography campaign which started in 2017. The series celebrates scars of all shapes and sizes, and the stories behind them. The series was started by photographer Sophie Mayanne. The series aims to challenge how we think about the skin we are in, and others around us. The ultimate aim of the project is to create a fine art photographic book, that can be a source of inspiration for years to come!” This was one of Chloe’s pictures that I received today and I think it’s my all time favourite picture of her, EVER 😍 So proud that she’s involved in this project!

So many people within the DS community hear constantly about all the things our little ones can't/won't be able to do. Thankfully we have been lucky to only receive positive input from any professionals we have come into contact with. One of my concerns when she was born was I wouldn't be able to take her swimming but after I spoke to Louise I was reassured that it wouldn't be a problem & that she would be able to adapt her teaching to accommodate Jessica! I made a decision to not inform the other members of our group of Jessica's DS for no reason other than I wanted her to be known as Jessica & I suppose in some ways to see how she would be accepted, well I need never have worried! I'm so proud that every achievement is celebrated not just by me but by our whole group! #mywaterbaby #lovesswimming #mermaidinthemaking #downsyndromebaby #downsyndromeawareness #dontscreenusout #donttelluswecant #donttellhershecant #nosuchwordascant #t21baby #t21love #morealikethandifferent #dontfeelsorryforus #dontfeelsorryforher #ifshecanyoucan

Feeding bootcamp day 1 underway. Bernadette is interested in food but when we offer it to her she sees it as a toy. So we met with speech yesterday and made a plan. 1. We are weighing her before and after feeding to see how much she is transferring. 2. At one feeding time I’m offering her baby food until she is uninterested, then giving her a break. Then when she shows signs that she is hungry offering her the baby food again before giving her my breast. (See heartbreaking picture) This is the hardest step for me because usually after trying baby food we go right to the boob and she was not happy with telling me she wanted milk and then being offered something else. 3. Wearing the speo vest for meals to help with trunk support. This gives her more support so she doesn’t need to work so hard. 4.give her the boob. We worked so hard to be breastfed, if it takes us a little longer to transition to solids we are ok with that. #💛💙 #theluckyfew #downsyndrome #dsdn #t21 #trisomy21 #tryingsolids #ourupswithdown #morealikethandifferent #notbroken #nothingdownaboutit #seemyability #upsyndrome #workingoneating #afedbabyisahappybaby
“Adoption was a busy and somewhat frightening process. People sometimes say we are courageous or special for adopting a baby boy with Down syndrome from across the world, but the truth is, there is really nothing special about us. We just had faith, but sadly even that was weak at times, with moments of anxiousness and thoughts of ‘what are we doing?,’ just like anyone else would. The moment we walked into the orphanage and held Nic for the first time, we knew all of those moments of fears didn’t matter. Nic was our son. ••• As the first visitors he had ever had, he cuddled into my arms with the muscle tone of a newborn baby due to the first year of his life being spent alone in the orphanage crib. He didn’t know how to make eye contact. His head shook back and forth, a habit formed as a mechanism for soothing and stimulation. He was frightened by the sound of his own giggle the first time we tickled him. But for the first time, he was shown love, and we knew he was going to learn just how loved he really was. ••• In January of 2017 we walked out the doors of that orphanage where he spent almost the first year of his life. Not a single person was there to say goodbye, but he arrived home to be greeted with the hugs, kisses and love of cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles and siblings! We celebrated his first birthday one week later. The first year of his life was spent alone in an orphanage crib, but he celebrated his first birthday surrounded by a mom, dad and six siblings! What a beautiful day!” ••• I have heard that adoption is hard and the wait is exhausting, but it is SO worth it. Just take a look at Nic before knowing love and after being loved for one and half years. The transformation is beautiful. He was shy, reserved and quite overwhelmed by his surroundings. Now Nic is social, active and he radiates joy and happiness. All because of LOVE! ❤️
