Raising a Child with Down's Syndrome and Finding Purpose through Entrepreneurship. In recognition of Down Syndrome Awareness Day, take a listen to Nita's story. Nita Ambedkar was loving her corporate job as an IT professional, but when she learned her second child had Down's Syndrome, she needed to find more balance. This change in her life's plan opened new opportunities, such as starting her own IT business, becoming a certified teacher of Yoga and Zumba, and learning from other parents who have thrived with their kids who have all types of abilities. Nita shares her inspiring story of determination and strength, and her wisdom that even if life doesn't turn out as planned, it can still be filled with joy and purpose.
Here is the Welcome to Holland document mentioned by Nita, written by Emily Pearl Kingsley in 1987 and still relevant today: http://www.dsasc.ca/uploads/8/5/3/9/8539131/welcome_to_holland.pdf.
