Especially during Down syndrome awareness month, I love to see all the ways people wear their awareness. There are Down syndrome shirts, like the one I am wearing above, available at That website also features Down syndrome jewelry, zipper pulls, and key chains. Some people sport blue and yellow nail art, and others even get Down syndrome awareness tattoos. All are ways to spark a discussion that leads to greater acceptance for people with Down syndrome. How do you wear your awareness?

    I’m wearing my Buddy Walk shirt now. I have several of them now. My key chain also has a Down syndrome awareness symbol. It was a gift from two of Ella’s older cousins. But I hope I wear awareness strongest in my attitude and enthusiasm.


I'd love to know what you think! Please leave a comment.
