World Down Syndrome Day (WDSD)

As I said before, today is World Down Syndrome Day. We finally figured out what we can do to make a little difference. We got an opportunity from DS Austria and the wonderful. Mrs. Wiesler and we are heading to the ORF radio station in a little bit. We  will participate in an informational radio program about DS. We are going to be the parents that answer questions about what it is like having a baby with DS. Listeners can call in and ask questions. For all of you in Austria, it will be in ORF Radio Steiermark between 9-10 am. I will see if I can get a link to it later and post it too. Keep your fingers crossed that I use the right words in German and not make some total blunder by accidentally saying the wrong thing (like the time I thought I said ‘sure thing’ and I actually said ‘fertile, really fertile’, thank G that was not on radio though…).

  2. Vad kul. Själv firar jag just nu med att inte kunna sova. Kramp i vaderna…ah, the joys of being pregnant. Fast jag ser på klockan att hos er är den 9 nu, så jag är väl uppe och är nervös för din skull. Hoppas allt går bra. Vill ha rapport senare. Kram, M

  3. Hey, cool! And I _do_ hope you make a couple blunders, that’ll stick in people’s memories much better than a perfect slick talk :-).

    BTW: I published a “where’s the fire” posting on Technorati. If enough people vote for it, the Down Syndrome Day just might make it to the front page. Here’s the link: http://technorati.com/wtf/world-down-syndrome-day

  4. Happy Down Syndrome Day. I can’t wait to listen to your interview and I hope you can find the link!

  5. Happy Down Syndrome Day! How cool you get to do the radio program – good luck! I made a little flyer for parents at d’s daycare and we bought d some yellow tulips. It’s a wonderful thing to celebrate!

  6. Thanks a lot, Christina!!!
    And for you guys, too!!!!! 😉
    I didn´t have much time lately to comment or even read all the blogs I´d like to. There´s a perfect German word to use in this kind of situation, but PLEASE DON´T say it on the radio: Scheisse!
    ;-))
    hugs
