Fragile X Awareness Day 2014

July 22nd is National Fragile X Awareness Day! I love this day because my Facebook explodes with facts about Fragile X and pictures of people across the Nation wearing green or a Fragile X shirt/hat to spread awareness and support. I hope that all of my family and friends join us in spreading that awareness.

This day to me is about spreading awareness so that our children can be accepted for who they are. Their quirks, flaws, flapping, squealing, hyperactive, repetitive, beautiful, loving, kind selves. Each day we have struggles and each day we have new accomplishments!

Fragile X has changed our lives in very big ways. It has definitely taken us down roads we never imagined. We have meet wonderful new friends and families all over the US because of Fragile X. We have been supported and reached out to from our hometowns, families, and friends in ways we could never have imagined.

Here is some of my family wearing their green and Fragile X shirts today:








Help spread awareness with us today! Don't forget to tag me in your picture so I can see them!!

Mom's Life --- I wanted to add this today because at almost the end of the song they sum up motherhood in 7 words. And it is a beautiful depiction of what life is really like most of the time :) Enjoy!
