This month is Down Syndrome Awareness month. I volunteer and am on one of the committees for Heartstrings Community Foundation. This is an organization that employees developmentally disabled adults and gives everyone the opportunity that they deserve. I have become very close to a lot of the people that work at Heartstrings and they constantly amaze me with their generosity and friendship. I feel extremely lucky to have them in my life. A few of my friends at Heartstrings were blessed with a little something extra and this is the month to be aware that we are more alike than different.
