Down syndrome footprint

If you look at this footprint, and you're like me, you'll say, "Huh, I don't understand why this is a symbol of Down syndrome." Look more closely. There is an unusual space between the big toe and the rest of the toes. That is one of the signs of Trisomy 21 which the pediatrician used to diagnose Christina in the delivery room.

Check out their adorable line of accessories on their website Down Syndrome Footprint, and the mom's new blog The Husby Five.

Almost looks like JM's foot except that his isn't cute and arched like that. It's just cute and chubby and flat LOL
