DBTL August - "At My Own Pace" (Down Syndrome Awareness)

I have an amazing cousin.
(Well, he's actually my first cousin's son.)

He graduated from high school.
He graduated from college.
He is a ballroom dancer.
He is a teacher's aide in an elementary school.
He travels the country going to conventions.
He has a girlfriend.

And he lives with Down Syndrome.

Because, you see, living with Down Syndrome doesn't mean you can't do things. It just means it might take you longer to get from Point A to Point B. To find out more about Down Syndrome, the National Down Syndrome Society website is a good place to start.

This month, the Digi Blog Train List folks chose Down Syndrome Awareness as their theme. Our designers have come up with some adorable kits:

As for me, I learned a lot as I went looking for word art inspiration. But what sums it up most is this "Down Syndrome Creed" that I found:

So with that in mind, here is my part of this month's blog train.
