Melissa and Augie

Melissa from Team LL here, with two things!

First, I want you to meet my son, Augie! 🥰 He’s a vibrant, smart, and curious 6 year old who lights up any room he walks into, loves dinosaurs & books & ice cream, and is one of the strongest, hardest working, and most determined little boys! He also happens to have Down syndrome. 

Which leads me to the second thing… today is kind of a big deal! It’s World Down Syndrome Day! 🎉🎉🎉

3 / 21 represents the third replication of the 21st chromosome, which is Trisomy 21, or more commonly known as Down syndrome. Today, we join with our friends, family, and the Down syndrome community to raise awareness of Down syndrome and advocate for acceptance and inclusion. 

My hope and desire for Augie is that he is always welcomed, valued and included. That he would be accepted for who he is — and that his differences can be celebrated. Lindsay’s Welcome Here Manifesto is a beautiful representation of what it means to have a heart to welcome all people. It’s one of my all-time favorite Lindsay Letters pieces because the words resonate so deeply, and because Augie inspired the inclusion of the word “chromosomes”!

In honor of Augie and the entire Down Syndrome Community, we have two special things happening at LindsayLetters.Co today, March 21!
