You might know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but did you know that it’s also Down Syndrome Awareness Month? Whether choose to honor a special child in your life with a piece of Mom jewelry or simply show your support for the many children and parents affected by this condition, we believe that no time is better than the present to celebrate that every baby with Down syndrome is precious.
One in every 691 babies born in the United States has Down syndrome, and far more are never given a chance at life. It’s estimated that up to 9 out of 10 babies who are diagnosed with Down syndrome in the womb are aborted.
This Down Syndrome Awareness month, we want to make is known that just as every child with Down syndrome is precious in God’s sight, they are precious in ours. Apples of Gold is pro-life and we believe that every baby should be given a chance to live and to become the unique people that they created to be. That’s why we celebrate the hundreds of little ones who are born each year with Down syndrome.
The Personalized Baby Shoe Pendant with Gemstone is a lovely way to keep a reminder of a precious little one close to heart. This petite pendant can be customized three ways, allowing it to serve as a unique reminder that every child is special and precious in the eyes of God. First, you can select the metal from which you want this cute little shoe to be crafted: white gold or yellow gold in your choice of 10K or 14K. You can also select the stone that adorns the top of this shoe, as well as opt to have the sole engraved with up to eight characters. A coordinating 18” Singapore chain is included, making this piece ready to wear and perfect for gift-giving, and creating a piece that can serve as a wearable celebration of the many little lives that have blessed your own.
