five [5!] months ago a little faba bean entered the world...
five months ago it was hard for me to say down syndrome without crying...
five months ago i knew our lives would never be the same...

five months later i can say the world is now brighter ...
five months later i love my girl with the bright almond eyes...
five months later i'm glad our lives are not the same.

today is down syndrome awareness day.
those with down syndrome have an extra 21st chromosome.
down syndrome is also known as trisomy 21.
we love our little girl with that extra chromosome.
