I apologize for only mentioning now that it's Down syndrome awareness month. I am participating in 31 for 21, or Get it DOWN, which is a committment to daily blogging for Down syndrome this month. It's an idea from Tricia of Unringing the Bell.
I'll start with a link to something I've already written about the passage of the Prenatally Diagnosed Conditions Awareness Act for the National Catholic Register. It's entitled, "Down, Hero Dad, and Palin".
