About

Ariana Elena Bautista was born on June 6th, 2014 and was diagnosed with Down Syndrome at birth. (AKA Trisomy 21 (T21) which is the 3rd replication of the 21st chromosome.) I felt lost, and confused. Having no previous experience with DS I didn’t know where to turn. like many parents I had questions, concerns. All I wanted were answers and I felt like I couldn’t find them.

I started this blog shortly after Ariana was born. A place where I would be able to express my thoughts, concerns, milestones, and emotions about Ariana. Which I’m sure I share with plenty of parents with children with Down syndrome. Educating myself was the first step, now I am Determined to raise Down syndrome awareness every chance I get.

I am, above everything a mother of two beautiful healthy girls. At times it is as if I can barely keep my head on straight, manage to keep my house clean, or even cook a decent dinner. I am a true believer in enjoying everything about life, celebrating every chance you get, and sharing love with those in need of it. Our life’s have changed drastically, for the best. I intend to enjoy everyday of it with my girls. Follow our journey in Raising Ariana and raising awareness.
