Welcome to the first day of October and the first day of the 31 for 21 blog challenge: Blogging every day in Oct for National Down Syndrome Awareness Month!
Long time readers of my blog may remember a book that featured a collection of essays (including one of mine) called Gifts: Mothers Reflect on how Children With Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives
Do you know how many years ago that was? Can you believe it's been ten years since that book was first published?
Not only is this the 10th Annual 31 for 21 Blog Challenge (it's not too late to go sign up at that link if you'd like to join us!), it was also my 10 year 'blogiversary' back in March, and this November is the 10th anniversary of that book being published!
In honor of the 10th anniversary of the publication of Gifts a special commemorative book is being published. This book features 10 new stories as well as a "where are they now" update on most of the children featured in the first book.
Preorders are now available and on sale this month at Woodbine House.
Woodbine House also has all books related to Down syndrome for 30% off during the month of October.
I'm thinking the next book on my list will probably be The Down Syndrome Transition Handbook - because we are inching ever closer to that milestone and I know it will be here before I'm ready for it!
