Izzy - Age 3

If not for your smile and your laugh and your heart, This place we call home would be minus a part. –
Nancy Tillman

Evan - Age 6

Once upon a time I became yours and you became mine, we will stay together through the tears and the laughter because that’s what they call, happily ever after

Kathleen - Age 21

One day, we won’t need to talk about inclusion, diversity, representation, and we’ll just live our lives. Until then…

Evan - Age 6

And I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.

Claire - Age 42

The rarest of the rare, I’m an inspirational woman called Claire.

Welcome to Making Chromosomes Count

To showcase to the world the fascinating kaleidoscope that is Down syndrome, as well as its community.

Our 2021 Ambassadors

We are excited to launch the Down syndrome community magazine, comprising of organisations and voices from within the heart of the Down syndrome community.

Our content will range from news, lifestyle and informative articles to stories that make you laugh, cry or become outraged.

This vision has been made possible thanks to a fabulous, passionate, eclectic, and international team of researchers, proof readers, editors, contributors and other wonderful individuals who keep volunteering time they haven’t really got, in order to produce this medium and raise awareness. 

This magazine provides valuable resources to the Down syndrome community, filtering into the wider community whilst representing every voice through real lived experiences. Providing information and support for professionals, new and expectant parents, existing parents, family members, and friends.

To showcase to the world the fascinating kaleidoscope that is Down syndrome.

Making Chromosomes Count will support, educate and advertise important messages whilst meeting individual needs by co-promoting from the heart of the Down syndrome community.” says Stacey Byrne, Co Founder, Making Chromosomes Count.  “One of our most important priorities with our magazine is to provide news and information by amplifying voices and providing platform to express it.”
