Day 29: Did You Know? Love and Encouragement.

By Jess

With tenacity, encouragement, and most of all LOVE, children with Down Syndrome will blossom.

Just like any child. We’ve seen first hand the fruits of our early support and love we gave to Ada. She is now 4 and happy, secure, confident, determined and imaginative. She is also starting to read short words and sounds out letters as she has a love for both.

We may need to support Frida in a slightly different way when it comes to learning (my brother and I needed different support to learn so not any different to any other siblings), but the way we will love her and provide her with the tools to be imaginative and happy will be exactly the same! So far so good. She smiles at anyone who interacts with her and is definitely in love with her family.
