I ordered the Hallmark movie, "A Smile as Big as the Moon" and our family will be watching the movie, for the first time, during the week of World Down Syndrome Day. One of MaKenna's favorite foods is popcorn, so we will be sure to have plenty of that during the showing. During the day, I am going to send blue and yellow colored popcorn, raspberry lemonade flavor, from our local Popcorn Shop to my daughter's preschool class and to my son's first grade class. The bags of popcorn will each have a tag stating the importance of World Down Syndrome Day. The night of World Down Syndrome Day we will be going to our church's AWANA bible training group. I will sharing popcorn bags with my daughter's bible training class that night and letting them know the importance of the day.

She inspires me everyday to be a better person. She is so determined to succeed, it makes me want to do better. She never gives up. She is in a regular school, in a special ed class. She loves going to school, and everyone loves her. There is something about her, that puts a smile on everyone's face. I am so lucky to have her in my life. • For World Down Syndrome Day, Emma is going to bring books about Down syndrome, and pass them around to the whole school, to teach them all about Down syndrome. Her twin brother Zack will read a speech in class and talk about his sister, and all about what having Down syndrome means. On 3/21 the vice principal will announce on the loud speaker that today is a special day. Emma and I will bake blue and yellow cupcakes and hand them out at school. After that, we as a family will all go out to dinner to celebrate this special day.
  7. 7. • 4- TABATHA GONZALEZ, EL PASO, TX • This past Saturday my family and I walked in the 2012 Buddy Walk in El Paso, Texas on behalf of my daughter Samantha. Samantha is 12 years old and was born with Down syndrome. She picked the theme this year for our family. She is amazed with superheroes so she decided that we would all be superheroes. Our team name was Samantha’s Superheroes. We each got to wear a cape as we walked amongst the other buddies on Saturday. Samantha enjoyed everyone stopping to admire her cape.
  8. 8. • 5- SHAWNNA SAULSBERRY, FORT LEE, VA • This year the Summer Special Olympics were held in Richmond, VA and we decided to volunteer to cheer on the teams that were participating. My son, Jaire, has Down syndrome and we were casually walking around waiting for the torch lighting ceremony. A boy walked up, playing with his medal from the previous year. Then he looked up and saw Jaire in his stroller. He yelled, "Mommy, mommy, look, he is just like me! Can I please give him my medal?" His mom and I tried to explain to him that he doesn't have to do that, but he insisted. He took it off and hung it around Jaire's neck and called him a winner. His actions set the tone for a great, awesome weekend. Here's to you, Jonathan!
