So the extra chromosome made them more special than us, don’t be jealous guys, but these children are the pride the world is celebrating and we are so proud to have them among us because they are beautiful and handsome, playful and sweet, creative and special and they can teach you what you never thought you ever have, love, they’ve got lot of it in their heart and they are super kids.
So the world celebrated World Down Syndrome Day yesterday and Moyinoluwa Rainbow Learning Center made it even more special as they celebrate Down Syndrome Day, a two day event that started with a walk around the community of Festac and today rounding it up, the center brought the community together to educate them about people living with Down Syndrome and what parent with child living with this condition should know. Like Tola Makinde the proprietress and creative director of the center and many other speakers said, early diagnosis is the key and not to hide the child even after the diagnosis, bring them out and give them the best social life that will educate them and better their condition.
Event which was graced by dignitaries like the Chairman of the Amuwo Local Government Comrade Valentine Buraimoh, Mrs Folusho Adeolu, Sifax Group, Racheal Inegbedion a representative of Initiative for National Growth and the public, parent and families of Down Syndrome kids, and the beautiful kids from the center. The kids thrilled the crowd with their different abilities, from walking the run way to artistic drawing, playing of the keyboard, choreographed dancing and their beautiful smiles.
Sometimes you never know what you can learn from the next person or a situation, for most of the parent it was a depressing situation giving birth to these kids but most of them found love in their heart after they’ve healed and gone past the stage of denial and these kids of theirs have thought them the qualities they never thought they possess.
The aim of this celebration is to tell the world and the society that we did not make us, God made us and that’s the best we’ve got, and we are all created for a reason, these kids are been given birth to this world for a reason and all we can do to help them is to help them discover their dreams and goals in life and support them like you’ll support what the society will call a normal child, we are all normal and they are beautiful with great dreams, don’t waste them, help them and make this world a better place.
