#FamilyFacts #DownSyndromeAwarenessMonth 2021
October is Down syndrome 'acceptance/awareness' month, & many of us have some understanding of how Down syndrome affects people, but few of us know exactly how it impacts a person’s life.
During this awareness month our mission statement 'to showcase to the world the wonderful kaleidoscope that is Down syndrome and its community’ is more important than ever. This month we will raise awareness of Down syndrome as well as the associated conditions.

LIFE through the eyes of her mother.
"Simone you are strong, & tough, you are also a girly girl. You love getting your hair, make-up and nails done. You emit an irresistible energy. Smart, funny, wilful, focused, empathetic & of course a boss lady diva. I wonder, with hope & excitement, what your future will be" - love, Mum.
