21 March – International Down Syndrome Day

डाउन सिंड्रोम जिसे ट्राइसोमी 21 के नाम से भी जाना जाता है, एक आनुवांशिक विकार है जो क्रोमोसोम 21 की तीसरी प्रतिलिपि के सभी या किसी भी हिस्से की उपस्थिति के कारण होता है। यह आमतौर पर शारीरिक विकास में देरी, विशेषतः चेहरे की विशेषताओं  और हल्के से मध्यम बौद्धिक विकलांगता से समन्धित है। डाउन सिंड्रोम वाले  एक युवा वयस्क का औसत  बौद्धिक स्तर 50 होता है जो  8 वर्षीय बच्चे की मानसिक क्षमता के बराबर है, लेकिन यह व्यापक रूप से भिन्न हो सकता है.
Down syndrome (DS or DNS), also known as trisomy 21, is a genetic disorder caused by the presence of all or part of a third copy of chromosome 21. It is typically associated with physical growth delays, mild to moderate intellectual disability, and characteristic facial features. The average IQ of a young adult with Down syndrome is 50, equivalent to the mental ability of an 8- or 9-year-old child, but this can vary widely.

Happy National Down Syndrome Day to my little sister!♥️♥️

🖤 Steph's Poetry and Such🖤

They say she is flawed
She says perfect ain’t a thing.
They say her brain works different
She says it’s boring to be sane.
They say she’s slower
She says we work at our own pace
They say she’s incapable
So she’ll try harder each day.
They said “It’s unlikely”
that she’d ever graduate.
Then they watched her wave as she walked across the stage.
She told me she was different
I told her stake your claim,
we’re all fighting to be different
My Sydney,

you were born that way.

img957316Dedicated to my beautiful sweet Sydney, my little sister. She has taught me more than life itself. I’m overwhelmed with gratitude to wear the title of “Syd’s big sis!” You make your big sisters so so proud and we hope we do the same! I can’t imagine a life without your big smile and bear hugs. ❤❤😘
