Day 21: Did You Know? Down Syndrome Awareness Day

By Jess

World Down Syndrome Day is celebrated every year across the world on March 21st. 3.21. Get it?

We knew on 21 March this year that our bump contained a little extra. At that stage we didn’t want to share that news publicly on social media. Not because we were worried or scared but because we wanted to tell our friends in discussion as opposed to as a broad announcement. We had so many wonderful conversations and discussions around that time and were so lucky to be met with love, respect and excitement from everyone.

We quietly celebrated World Down Syndrome Day by wearing Odd Socks. We were already so excited to meet her. It felt like we had so long to wait. Little did we know we would be waiting out the next 4 months before her arrival in lockdown!!!!
