Hello My Name is Jack and I happen to have Down Syndrome

So most of you by looking (or not) at my Second Eldest son’s picutres would of likely realised he has Down Syndrome…….I do not talk about it much because well, its really a NON issue for us for the most part. Well that was until recently when all over the so called modern world a movement to make kids like Jack a thing of the past started to build a small amount of support.
I am not going to go in to right now, but it woke me up, it made us as parents realise that if we make DS a non issue people will not only not see Jack for Jack but, also not see him as the amazing vibrant teenager that he has become…….
We personally think that parents being offered a “choice” earlier and earlier in pregnancy need to see that DS for the most part is really only a very small part of who our kids are…….SO I am going to document Jacks life more, I have also started a facebook page Called ******Hello WORLD – Jack Speaking****** I will put a link to it up shortly.

Jack really just lives a ordinary life, but I guess that is just what alot of expectant parents want to hear/see.

So come join us on the facebook, share it with your friends……and lets Celebrate being having Down Syndrome and lots of ordinary!!
