A Blogging Anniversary

This is my ninth year of blogging and while there are times I think it's time to hang it up, today isn't the day.

Today I will keep up with a tradition I started a couple of years ago on my 'blogiversary' - donating $1 for every comment on this post to an organization centered on Down syndrome cognition research.

LuMind Foundation and Research Down Syndrome recently merged to become LuMind Research Down Syndrome Foundation. This is exciting news since they both shared the same mission of Down syndrome cognition research and used the same scientific advisory board. Now resources can be combined for greater power in focusing on cognition and Alzheimer research. My family has supported both organizations with Joe raising money for the RDS Runners program - which will carryover to the merged organization - I'm excited to see them become one organization.

As in years past, for World Down Syndrome Day (Mar 21st), all donations to LuMind RDS Foundation will be matched 3:1.

Please join me in celebrating not only my blog's anniversary, but celebrating Kayla on World Down Syndrome Day, by leaving a comment on this post.

Thank you for following along with our family's journey.
