Hi! I’m Lily. I’ll be 3 years old soon. I love gymnastics, ballet, and swimming. I rock my babydoll to sleep every night. I greet my family, friends, teachers and therapists with a sincere hug every time I see them. I communicate with American Sign Language.
Oh, I also have Down syndrome! It’s part of me just like those other wonderful and interesting things. And even though it’s in every one of my itty bitty cells, it doesn’t dictate what I’m capable of, how I act or how I love, where I go to school or who I can be friends with. It makes me a little extra special, and I think that’s kind of cool.
Happy World Down Syndrome Day! 💛💙 #wdsd2019 #theluckyfew #dsdn #gigisplayhouse #rubysrainbow

Words can not explain the love felt throughout the gala last night. To see the faces of so many of my friends, especially the ones who traveled in from out of state, supporting such a wonderful cause was indescribable. Our sponsors, celebrity guests, and committee most definitely outdid themselves. I am proud to say we have once again set a new record for the funds raised. I would like to thank each and every one of you from the bottom of my heart. Together truly anything is possible. ...

I was challenged by tinydancer_kk to join the Generation G Challenge!
I am asking all of my followers to show their support of gigisplayhouse by following them and taking part in the #gengdanceoff ! Show your support by taking the pledge to BE GENEROUS, BE ACCEPTING and BE KIND! Then show off your moves!! 💃

“Congratulations! You are one step closer to becoming America’s favorite dancer! It’s official. Robert, son of Doug and Ann Wallop, has been selected to dance in front of the So You Think You Can Dance judges in LA on March 20, the day after Robert defends his two time World Special Olympics Dance Challenge medal in Abu Dhabi.

Omg!!! Who watched americanidol tonight??? How amazing was the ending?? Best way to start off National down syndrome day on Wednesday!! Remember wear mismatch socks!!! ...

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 ...

This weekend, Eliza and Abram had a little Valentine’s Day date at our local gigisplayhouse, where kids who have Down Syndrome and their families get support, community, and a lot of fun.⠀

It always confounds people when I say our two youngest kids are four months apart. I’m grateful for the extra love Eliza brings to our family and humbled by the gravity of getting to be her mom through adoption.⠀

I remember the way my hand rested on my bump as the other held a phone with the voice on the line telling me about a three-week-old baby girl. I remember how she slept on my bump as Abram grew in my womb. I remember how they were briefly the same size in their swaddles. I remember how much I cried when I held both of them in my arms for the first time.⠀

Love looks different in every family. I never could have imagined it would look like this in ours, different bloodlines and different chromosomes and all. It’s broken and mended my heart a thousand times over and more beautiful than I ever could have dreamed.⠀

This week they’ve both been feverish and achy, and in the midst of Tylenol and wiped noses and extra cuddles, it’s good to remember how much better I am because of my babies, who are suddenly not babies anymore. ♥️ #abramandeliza #theluckyfew #gigisplayhouse #helloelizamarie

@kobebryant was not only an exceptional husband, father, and athlete, he was also so thoughtful and encouraging to our @specialolympicsillinois athletes.
This photo was taken in 2008 at the @specialolympicsillinois ceremony in Chicago with Marc who is a talented gymnast and is an intern at @hugs_and_mugs_cafe
Our deepest condolences go out to his family and friends. The world has lost a great man.

As many of you know I work for GiGi's Playhouse. One of my roles for the playhouse is community engagement. For the month of October we are challenging others to step up, get down and help us create awareness and acceptance for individuals rocking an extra chromosome!

Help us spread the word in this fun simple way by creating your own #GenerationG Dance challenge video! Generation G is a commitment to being accepting, being generous and being kind.

Here is my Generation G dance video. I am challenging Jim Wojdyla to a dance off! Show us your moves Jim Wojdyla!! Show us your moves and challenge your friends!
