When you say Down's Syndrome blog or online support community, you immediately think of his website, probably the most popular in the world.
I was proud and honoured when Rick asked me to write a guest post as part of Down Syndrome Awareness Month #DSAM2013. He then went on to tell me that I would be his first ever guest blogger and that he reaches a million or so people a month. (Nothing to be nervous about then, ahem!)
I set about trying to think of a post that could bring something new to the table, wouldn't repeat what Rick had already written, something that brought a flavour of Britishness to his American audience in a way that brought us all closer across the miles. I hope I achieved that and I hope you enjoy
