Hop...Hop...Hop - 1 truth, 1 tip & 1 pic...

As mentioned before the "Down syndrome Blogging Community" is fan-freaking-tastic...Such an inspiring, honest & talented bunch...I'm honoured to be amongst them, learn from them & share them with y'all...

This is a post for a blog hop as part of a project with Down syndrome blogs & T21 Alliance- The purpose is for each blogger to share one truth, one tip & one photo...The significance is sharing 3 things on the 21st!!!


So here goes it...


One Truth: I am utterly shocked by the depth of ignorance in some people..I am shocked to learn that people have gone out of their way to make negative, mean, derogatory, hurtful & completely unnecessary comments on photos or such of babies, children or adults with Down syndrome...It just blows my mind that someone has that within them to seek out a photo to make a comment like that...


One Tip: Ignore the negativity & the ignorance...Easier said than done I realize...Since Happy Soul Project, I've only received a handful of "negative" comments- One directly at me to stop pitying my life & the others directed at my views on same-sex marriage...By putting my life, my struggles, my journey with it all including Down syndrome out there, I have to realize that at some point I will receive a derogatory comment about my Pip...And while I will want to punch-throat someone in the neck about it, I have to let it go, realize that person is a sad, sick or demented soul and get on with it...


One Pic: Okay I know, I know the rules state one pic but I just had to do two...While I was taking this adorable pic of Pip sleeping, 



she woke up, recognized me & I got this smile...I mean come on, I had to post it...
