We need your help to break stereotype

I`m very excited to tell you we begin our now project to spread the word about kids with Down syndrome.We have talked here many times we should to start it.So, we start! :)

Than more we read different information about these special kids and adults as well, than more we see beautiful pictures, videos, read wonderful blogs etc.All the more we realise it`s time to start. Time to share information in Ukraine about these beautiful and sunny kiddies!
As many of you probably know that Ukraine does not have special schools, kindergarten or nursery school, special programs, special education, books for these children.Other word Ukraine has NOTHING to develop and train them.As the result Ukrainians know nothing about kids with Down syndrome and they are ignored and suffer here.
Our main goal is to share this information as much as it is possible.To tell people they are same, as many other kids, they can learn, read, write, swim, ride a bike, to work, marriage,  enjoy a life as many of us and not be socially ignored as they are here.
 
First of all we think to do it in orphanages and mental institutions.We think to share pictures, videos, information with employers of orphanages on special meeting.We did not ask permitting of directors yet but we VERY hope, they let us do it.

Friends, we need your help.It`s very sadly but we have a little information in Ukraine.I found only two blogs of parents who have kids with DS and we know only one organization who work with these kids.I will be continue to search information about Ukrainian kids.I`m not sure or will find more...

Anyway.We would love to ask you.Please, can you help us to break stereotype? We need links of websites where we can find information about special kids.And we need pictures and videos what would be helpful.I know some of you have kids with special needs.We would love to kindly ask you.Can you share with us pictures of your kids?It would be good when they do something.That will show ukrainian people what these children can do.Many of you know parents who have kids with special needs.Probably you can share this information with them and they can send us pictures of their kiddies also. We would be VERY happy to receive pictures and video or links to video as well.

We would love to show pictures and videos of foreign sunny kiddies too.If in America, Australia, Canada, Switzerland, Great Britain, Mexico and many other countries these kids can live by productive and full life?But why not Ukrainians?Why Ukrainians sunny kiddies should to suffer? Why orphans should to die and suffer in mental institutions?  It`s not God`s will! 

We excited and dream to break Ukrainian stereotype! Our dream and prayer is to show and inform that these children CAN have a bright future.

Yes, it`s will take a time.We do not know how much.But we excited to do it and very hope that staff of orphanages and mental institution will change their thinking, knowledge, their hearts and relation to these kids.

Please, can you help us by your pictures or links?It will be very helpful! Who knows maybe picture of your little angel will change a heart of someone forever to break stereotype?
Please, can you share this link with many others?Probably someone can help to give us important information?

Thank you so much for any your help! We really appreciate it much!God bless you!

  7. Corey, it`s so wonderful!I wanted to see a person adult with DS. I have never seen before how they live as many other people.We see only in mental institutions and orphanages but not older than around 30 years old.That it`s why we need a lot of information to share with ukrainians.Thank you for the link!
