I started writing this blog immediately after Ozzie was born, and I continued to do so for quite a long time. I wrote frequently until all the dark days had passed me by. If you're in the thick of those dark days, I promise they will soon pass you by, too. Pinkie swear. If any of you decide to stick around and read my story, I recommend you start at the very beginning. July 15, 2008. Post number one.
One quick note - you'll notice that I haven't posted anything new here for quite some time. It's not because I don't have things to say, it's just that life with Ozzie has become "regular old life" for me. These days, I don't often feel like I have amazing and remarkable and insightful things to share with the world. But for those of you who are curious, and especially for those parents out there who are new to the Down syndrome scene, I hope you find my blog interesting and helpful.
Please leave me a comment on this post if you don't mind, especially if you've never been here before. Just a quick hi or something. I'm interested to see who drops by. And if your name is Ann Coulter, the comments section of this post would be a great place to post your heartfelt apology.
Also, if anyone is interested in connecting with me on Facebook, please come seek out the "T21 Brigade" Facebook group. It's a private group of advocates who stand up for the rights of people who have Down syndrome. We are accepting new members and we would love to get a message from you if you would like to join.
