There, I said it.
He really, really annoys me.
He reminds me of the know-it-all in class who wouldn’t just raise his hand every.single.time with the answer; he’d jump up and shout it out – after he peeked in the answer book.
It annoys me that after he spammed the hell out of the Down syndrome mommy community, he now makes it “okay” to have a child with Down syndrome. Like any of us need his permission. It annoys me that he doesn’t collaborate with the community. He is a constant self-promotion machine. It annoys me that somehow people think this good.
Well, I suppose if someone is being helped by him, then okay. I just think that if I had found him when I was pregnant with Moxie and heard the cloying tones of his virtual pen, I’d have despaired deep in my heart: that being “okay!” with Down syndrome was what was in store.
Now smack me already.
What I wanted when I was pregnant is what is out there now in the form of Down syndrome Blogs.
It’s a labor of love to the people like me that are out there and need to find a voice that they can relate to.
So, if you haven’t been, go now. Browse around. Make some friends. Rediscover old ones.
The past Blog Hops are also up, and there are some truly excellent Power Posts linked.
Want your own blog added?
Email me the link, please, as well as the sub-categories you think it fits with (for example, do you also write about adoption? Or your faith? Are you pregnant right now, awaiting your child who will be coming with Down syndrome? etc).

End rant. Now let’s go out there and enjoy our day.
