This month is Down syndrome awareness month. In honor of that, we decided our post my interview with Lara Segrest today. Lara has been my friend for the past seven years, and I have watched her family grow and expand during that time. During the interview, I talk to Lara about her family, what it was like to get a Down syndrome diagnosis during pregnancy, preparation for their son John Issac, and what life has been like after his birth.
My hope and prayer is that this conversation brings some awareness to Down syndrome (I know I learned something new) and brings some help to someone in a similar situation. As you can see from the pictures, John Issac is a beautiful, thriving little boy. I hope you learn as much from our conversation as I did. Fair warning: you may cry a little.
