World Down syndrome Day 2020

Happy WDSD!!! Around 12 years ago, 3.21 of each year was declared World Down syndrome Day. Why March 21? Because Down syndrome is defined as a Person having 47 chromosomes versus 46. The extra chromosome is a third (3) copy of the 21st chromosome.

To celebrate this day it has become a fun tradition of wearing funky socks! But why? Because when you look at your DNA under a microscope our chromosomes are shaped liked little socks!

So from all our families to yours- Happy WDSD! Thank you for showing us your funky socks!! here are a few of our Favorites. ??
