In My Own Words: People with Down Syndrome is a newly launched blog “dedicated solely to the stories, reflections, and experiences of people with Down syndrome.” Katherine Anderson and her son, Sam, who has Down syndrome, created the blog together as a way to give people with Down syndrome a “place to be heard.”

Katherine, who has a background in journalism, is partnering with Sam to conduct interviews and select content for the blog, and they would love to hear from you!
