Celebrate Life with Me Today

Thank you for all the kind words this week, especially the ones about Trig.  Did you know that today – March 21, 2012 – is actually World Down Syndrome Day? It’s a great day to take a moment and celebrate life. Children with  Down Syndrome are beautiful, and I’m so proud of my baby brother. I wouldn’t want him any other way!

Now, I dare you guys to watch this without crying:


  • Sue Lynn

    God is about love and love is seen here!!!!

    Hi Bristol,
    Our prayers and thoughts are with you as you endure
    the utter stupidity of so many or todays stupid creatures.
    My wife and I have great respect for Gov. Sarah Palin, your
    father and entire family. Ours would be a greater country
    were we fortunate enough to have here as President of the
    USA. Keep the faith for God loves you and we do also. You
    are an uplifting example to all of us as you have admitted your
    error and sought and received Gods forgiveness and now
    diligently go on with your life raising your precious son.
    It blows my mind to see the attitude of so many whose own
    sins are horrendous and who will not seek to correct their own
    lives and yet harshly chriticize for things far less than what they
    are guilty of.
    God is real and He is alive and well. He is the victor and one day
    soon we shall see him solvc things in His own way and time.
    Keep up the good work and do not let evil men silence you.
    Don and Kathleen Bland

  • Ramona Long

    Thank you for the opportunity to view this video. Yes, I have tears in my eyes from the joy I feel seeing God’s greatest gifts. You are an awesome lady and do continue what you are doing!

    I just want to commend Track and Britta Palin for being great parents and being the example that others should be looking to in regards to keeping their kids safe and protected from the tabloids and public consumption.

    Excellent Job! Track and Britta

  • Joseph

    Just look at the smiles on all those precious little ones. They give you unconditional love, and a smile every minute. They are amazing!! I have known and do know several special kids..Thank you for this program. Keep up the good work. Love Grannie Annie in Nikiski

  • Andrea Broussard

    Yup, cried like baby. I drove a bus for special needs children for five years and it gave me great joy. One of my favorite times of year was when we drove the kids to local Special Olympics. They would all get on the bus and show off the ribbons they had won that day.

  • Erin

    Thanks so much for your testimony Bristol-It’s truly inspiring to so many! (There are many more of us out here than you probably know because we don’t say much publically, but we are still a force, supporting you and your family.)

    Thanks for highlighting about today too. It’s pretty cool, all this attention that Down Syndrome has received, especially since your family came under the national spotlight. If you have time, check out this family’s blog about their experiences: http://www.noahsdad.com. They post about their little guy and what life with Noah is like.

    Take care!

      Thanks for sharing our website, that means a lot to us!

      And thanks Bristol for posting this. Our son Noah was born with Down syndrome and we have a website where we do a daily one minute video to show the world that Down syndrome is ok. We’ve been able to connect with thousands of people all across the World, it’s been amazing.

      If you get a chance you should stop by our Facebook page (over 13, 000 families!) and post a picture of Trig, everyone there loves seeing pictures!

      Thanks for showing the world a story of love. :)
