Yahoo, we are so excited to be back in person for the Buddy Walk! We would love to have our family and friends join us for this amazing walk. I don’t know where our family would be without DSNO. After Anna was born we had the honor of meeting one of the co-founders Paula, who come to visit us 12 years ago in the hospital. Paula also brought a Basket of Hope filled with goodies and information about Down Syndrome.

DSNO offers amazing events to moms, dads and of course are amazing kiddos: Family night at Oaks Park, CHAP (Children’s Healing Art Project), Virtual Cooking classes, Exercise classes, Mom’s night out, Dad’s gatherings, mom’s weekend retreat. These are just of the amazing events that DSNO offers!!!

Anna is a blessing from the Lord and knows how to reach and touch peoples’ hearts. If someone is having a bad day, Anna knows how to get that person to smile and to bring joy to them. Anna has a sweet and gentle spirit when she is around babies and other kiddos with special needs.



Anna has been a precious blessing from God. I watch in amazement as this once tiny bundle has grown into a beautiful young lady. I look forward to all her new experiences getting ready for the wonderful teen years ahead. I am so grateful to God for giving our family this truly beautiful and most precious gift. I love you Anna. Love Gramma
