August 30, 2011 our daughter, Harper Alice was born with Down syndrome. We were aware of her diagnosis during week 20 of my pregnancy and were ready to welcome her into this world. You can read our story here.
One of my goals is to help the world recognize that Down syndrome is not a death sentence but an opportunity to highlight the differences in all individuals. The Madison Area Down Syndrome Society has helped my family, and many others, do just that.
Please join us for the 11th annual Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk for the Madison Area Down Syndrome Society. If you can't join or team please considering donating to the Madison Area Down Syndrome Society. We were welcomed with open arms and look forward to paying it forward.
