Hellooooo it’s been nearly two months since I last wrote a blog so I have chose to give you an update as I’m feeling aware of my lack of productivity…..
What is Down Syndrome? There are many articles, websites and support groups on social media that can tell you the science, the facts and the up to date information of what Down Syndrome is. Here I share with you what I think it is in my own words, a mum’s opinion….
I start this blog by expressing that these are my own views and my only expertise is to raise a daughter (who is currently 10yrs old) with Down Syndrome. I have wanted to write blogs like this for so long but have stopped myself for fear of judgement; no more.
What a year and I know this is a late one for an annual review however I thought it would be a nice way to start the year off, with some intention. So let’s get started by beginning with what briefly happened in 2019, how did T21Hub start and what to anticipate in 2020.
After 10 whole nights and days I felt I had to review our family summer trip to Gouves, giving an honest account of whether it is an inclusive complex for a child with Down Syndrome.
Today is the day, my daughter Ellie, who has Down Syndrome starts year 6 and I am feeling very emotional. Since they broke up for summer I have always been on countdown for their return, yes I am that mum lol. We have had a lovely family summer but I truly believe six weeks is too long to be out of routine and that goes for both parents and children. So today is the day, the day Ellie enters her final year of primary and I am emotional. Here’s why……
The first chapter with Ellie is something I’ve wanted to write for a long time but it’s not a happy story to begin with and I’ve debated with myself often but have decided it bis always best to be open and honest
It’s a common saying isn’t it? ‘If only I knew then what I know now’ but this couldn’t be more relevant to me as I recently celebrated my daughters 10th birthday. Ellie was born with Down’s Syndrome ……
After having my daughter Ellie I was suddenly surrounded by a lot of outdated facts, myths and sterotypes of Down’s Syndrome
Taking action to achieve your goals….
