save the date!

It's that time again....The Walk with Angels!
Leighton was not diagnosed with Down syndrome before birth.  Little did we know what an amazing blessing she would be, and how her extra 21st chromosome would change our lives for the better.  Two days after her birth two amazing mothers from United Angels walked into my hospital room, and help to change the negative outlook of her diagnosis for My husband and I.  They each had a child with Down syndrome who had blessed them, and their lives were better for it.  United Angels does one fundraiser a year.  Every position in the foundation is by volunteer. The money donated for the walk helps the foundation provide learning materials, educational classes and activities for families with children who have special needs.  They have been an amazing support for our family. We are always excited to get to go to a party or class with the foundation. I know it will be a huge blessing for Leighton as she grows up knowing, playing, and befriending other children her age with special needs.  It's also a great place for my other children to learn, and befriend children with special needs their own age and also make friends with other kids who have special need siblings as well.

The walk is on August 25, and our team is called Chrome Cousins. If you want a team shirt this year please let me know. They should be 5 dollars. I will have more details on that soon, but they are going to be super CUTE!  We formed a team with Leighton's Cousin this year.
Please visit our team page. Even if you can't come you can still donate. Every little bit counts.
