Baby's First Steps!!

Did you know that today, March 21st, is World Down Syndrome Day? Partners In Learning joined thousands of people in wearing their jeans to spread awareness for the extra "genes" that our friends with Down Syndrome carry everyday.

Today allowed me to put myself in the shoes of parents whose children have special needs, whether Down Syndrome, Autism, or any number of special needs.

I can only imagine what it is like to work so hard encouraging your own child to meet a goal and for it to finally happen.

While I am not yet a parent myself, I live for the moments of "firsts" with the children I work with everyday. It is the most amazing feeling to see a child meet a milestone after weeks, months, or even years of work.

Check out this video that I recorded of a child I see weekly taking some of her first steps! I was beyond excited, and she was so proud of herself when she finally took off!!
