oh, those pictures made me cry....I hate that word....
Wow. I'm trying to feature a different organization or blog every day until March 21st. I would love to be able to share this today. Love the addition of the Dr. Seuss quote....fitting since it's his birthday! :) It fits perfectly!!!
wow Sister. that is bold. you got guts.
This kills me Courtney. Absolutely cuts to the heart. But so necessary. I'm sure it wasn't easy to put this together but I'm glad you did. Now I have to go find a box of tissues...
Absolutely breaks my heart seeing that word with their picture...
That word sickens me to the core. This is a very powerful message, I wish everyone could see it. As a teacher, I hear that word often and don't hesitate to correct students. Thank you for this.
My own husband, who still believes it's just a stupid word and doesn't quite understand my feelings about it, said "That is brutal!" Bravo! I only wish I could be so articulate, even with a picture and a quote. Thank you.
i have 2 cousins that had downsyndrom and people use to make fun of them when i was younger i hated it.they have both passed away now but it still makes me angry when people call people names that has a disiablity.my dream has always been to work with the handicapped.they are so sweet and they are more loveing than the other people they accept others for who they are.i hope the world will stop useing that bad name the R word i hate it,

Bravo----I am sure that even the most heartless person is touched by this. If they aren't there is not much hope for them.Now can i have some Pudge and Biggie fun stuff....pleaseeeeeeeeee!!Sunnie in NC
Powerful post. Breaks my heart to see that word over the pictures of your two rays of sunshine... Love the quote by Dr Seuss, so fitting.
Good morning. Just read your back story. What beautiful children you have. Your message is so powerful, reaching the core. My son is 29 and has Down's syndrome. We have had quite the adventure together, it has been a wild ride at times. Over the years I have seen people's attitudes change, but it certainly has a long way to go. So glad to have found your wonderful blog.
Looking at those sweet faces with that ugly word underneath is so heartbreaking. Thank you, Courtney, for your courage and big thanks to those precious Squibs.xoxo
