Wdsd19: Ailbe meets his idols

Yesterday was an international celebration of Down Syndrome and all the amazing people involved.

We were lucky enough to be invited to a Mayors lunch organised by Portsmouth Down Syndrome Association and the amazing Singing Hands came along. They put on a fabulous show Party time 💙💛

Ailbe couldn’t quite believe his “girls” were no longer in his tablet

We had a brilliant day. We sang, danced, and met friends.

Not everyone is lucky enough to be in this community. However, it doesn’t stop you being part of it.

Later that evening the whole world came together on Facebook to have a live world watch party to celebrate #WDSD19 World party well done #wouldntchangeathing

Thank you to everyone who took part in raising awareness for Ailbe and his tribe.

Wdsd19

So here is this years video. It’s beautiful and I am so proud to know a few of the beautiful souls in it.

Why do they keep producing awareness videos? Because every day someone or some company keeps seeing our beautiful children as a “risk” and that needs to change!

Soooo excited to be sharing this video compilation.

Yes Ailbe is in this Video that the amazing WCAT team have compiled.

None of the images you will see have been done by professionals. These have all been composed by parents who are passionate about changing perceptions and making the world a better place not just for our children but for future generations.

Here is the one I did for Ailbe 🥰

Oh and please share share share 💙💛💙

Oh the places you’ll go

Ailbe is on the move!! He is becoming more adventurous.

However….

Sometimes Ailbe gets in places he can’t get out of. Like tonight. One minute Ailbe was crawling around the living room and the next minute I see these little eyes peering over at me….

When you have really enjoyed your pudding and laughing because mummy & daddy have to try and get you out of the chair without getting covered in chocolate too 😁

A little poster I created after being inspired by so many amazing parents out there

Soon everyone’s news feed will hopefully be flooded with these amazing posters, just in time for world Down syndrome day 2019.

What’s the point? What’s the aim?

When a new parent or parents to be are looking for information on Down Syndrome. We want the internet to be balanced with positive information for them to see.

What better way than to have hundreds of these type posters

Please like and share 💙💛💙💛

I had fun creating this little poster. #wdsd #wcat #lifewithsaoirse #t21 #luckyfew #mumsofinsta #love #littlewarrior #newcampaign #changingperceptions #iamable #ability #abilitiesnotdisabilities #differentabilities #worldchanger #t21rocks #dsa #downsyndrome #poster #positivechange #positive #charateristics #wouldntchangeathing #teamwcat

Brothers

This morning like every other household. We are in a mad rush trying to get the kids ready for school. Every parent can relate to the stress that this brings. Kids not getting dressed or looking for lost homework or having just remembered they haven’t done homework. All the while the clock is ticking.

During this busy Friday morning I hear a little made up song being sang. Conor is making up a song for Ailbe. In this song he sings “I don’t care about your Down’s syndrome because you are amazing and I love you to the moon and back”

In these special moments my heart couldn’t be prouder.
