Let's Change The World Together!

Down Syndrome Awareness & Acceptance!

Hey GiGi.... Of course the dancing queen was ready for your #GenGdanceoff challenge! CoCo is joining everyone over gigisplayhouse to make sure that all people with Down syndrome are accepted and loved and celebrated all over the world! Who’s ready for the challenge??! Since CoCo learned most of her moves from Mr Bryan himself, it’s only fitting that she nominate linabryan3 and Luke to take on the challenge! Luke & Caroline you ready? 😉 #gigisplayhouse #strongertogether #GenerationG ...

Do you believe in GiGi’s Professionals?! Our GiGi Pros are total ROCKSTARS. They've graduated from GiGi U and are now preparing for employment or volunteer opportunities in their community by developing valuable career skills through our GiGi Professional program. You’d be blown away by what our GiGi Pros can do!
Our adult programs are one of our fastest-growing demographics! This year, GiGi’s provided over 100,000 HOURS of programming to adults with Down syndrome and gaining every day! AMAZING!

This #GivingTuesday, your gift can make a difference! #BelieveinGiGis #GiGisPlayhouse

Peace, love, & acceptance. Yeah baby! Groovy, spooky dance party at GiGi’s! What a blast to celebrate together with friends from the Naval Academy, Oracle, Target and the community! We love our greater-Annapolis family! Thanks to our participant leaders who are learning event planning in our Dancetastic program with Emily & Olivia!

Sam and Max were roommates and best buds growing up. Sometimes we wonder how much he understands about Max passing away. Death is an strange thing to explain to someone young. One thing I’ve learned about Sam in the last two years is that he just takes life as it comes and always has an invincible innocence, persistent happiness, and otherworldly contentment. In difficult times, Sam is an anchor in my life and I’m blessed by that immeasurably. Thank God for both of my little brothers.
We talk to Sam about Max a lot to keep Max's memory close to him as he grows up. Usually we'll ask him, "Sam, where is Max?" And he's always quick to say, "In Heaven with Jesus!!" #nothingdownaboutit #brothersforever #inspired #upsyndrome #downrightwonderful #upwithdown #gigisplayhouse #nighttoshine #blessed

Watching Big Sister at swim class😊 Baby Arabella is a true miracle. She was ultimately given a 5-10% chance of ultimate survival after they found fluid surrounding her heart, lungs, stomach, and extremeties at around 12 weeks in utero, a condition called Hydrops. This was in addition to the Down Syndrome diagnosis. They thought she was in heart failure and could see some unknown serious heart defects. Every time I went in for an ultrasound, (every 1-2 weeks),it was to check when her little heart had stopped beating. But little by little the ultrasounds were showing improvement! The fluid was disappearing from her extremities, then her stomach, then her lungs, and finally, her heart. Then ultimately, it was gone! And her heart? No heart failure and only a couple of very minor defects. So many people prayed for this little baby and I am forever grateful to them and to God. She is our miracle. Read her full story here: https://feedingtrials.com/our-miracle/#downsyndrome#downsyndromelove#downsyndromeawareness#downsyndromeawarenessmonth#theluckyfew#gigisplayhouse#gigisplayhousephx#sharingdownsyndromeaz#sharingdownsyndrome#hydrops#hydropssurvivor#miraclebabybella#downsyndromelove#gcwbaby#cricutexploreair2#cricutcreated#gcwbaby#hydrops#hydropssurvivor#globaldownsyndromefoundation#worthy#dsdn#nobodytoldme#positiveaboutdownsyndrome#iceland#statementonesies#babylove#momlife#miraclebaby ...

It’s Down Syndrome Awareness Month y’all 😉 a little shout out to my amazing parents for bringing my brother Sam into the world! I’ve learned more from Sam about what’s important in life than anyone else. It’s an amazing thing to look up to your younger brother. “He’s Different... and I’m thankful that my little brother is different than me.” Love you, bro. Can’t wait to shoot a music video with you this Sunday!!!! #hesdifferent #nothingdownaboutit #upsyndrome #gigisplayhouse #gigifest #timtebowfoundation #nighttoshine ...

My brother is a rock star. I’ll always be proud to be his brother. I can’t even imagine who I’d be today without this little guy in my life to constantly remind me what life is about and to live in the present moment. And when it comes to loving people without any agenda or hidden motives (except when he wants his much coveted trifecta: a hamburger, French fries, and a chocolate shake) I can truly say I look up to my little brother more than anyone else. Thank you God for Sam! It’s amazing how I can be halfway across the globe and miss him! #upsyndrome #nothingdownaboutit #gigisplayhouse #downrightwonderful #specialolympics #specialneeds #thebest #brother #holyland ...
