I solicited mismatched (or, as Corin calls them, “matchbox”) sock photos from friends and family in honor of Lina’s first World Down Syndrome Day, and the response has been so awesome. I could say a lot of things about the metaphor of the fabulously fun and very different socks that are still fundamentally more alike than different, but really, I think the photos say it best.
Take a gander at all these wonderful people rocking their socks in support of Lina and Down syndrome awareness.

Kinda makes you feel like matching socks are just boring, doesn’t it?
