If you have wondered why I have been titling every post this month October:Down syndrome Awareness month.. well it is partly because it is...but secondly because on October 1st when I posted my first note I instantly had 16 different countries pop onto my blog. I was up really late, so I thought my eyes were going buggy on me. I looked again and sure enough I had all these beautiful flags come up on my Live Traffic Feed down below. I was so excited...my 6 degrees of separation had just gone international!! :) It was about 1:30 in the morning but I had to share this with Toby so woke him up. We couldn't figure out what I had done other than title the post Down syndrome Awareness Month... so now it is hard for me not to put that same title each time in hopes that Japan, Sweden, Afghanistan, Ireland, Tokyo, Canada, Germany, Italy and the others would come back for a visit. It made me think of the song It's a Small World. It truly is amazing how Reid's extra 21st chromosome has made this world smaller for our family... and I find it so beautiful to be connected to others in countries and states I would of never otherwise had contact with.
If you are one of those new friends that popped on from another country, or a faithful friend that follows this blog... come back again for post #8 because I need your input for a brand new family I just met who has a 3 week old son who also happens to have Down syndrome. But, for now enjoy It's A Small World...Disneyland style.
