5 years ago Vince and I were given the best gift in the world. We were blest with a beautiful little boy and we were over the moon in love with him. Then we were told that Ryan had Down Syndrome and it felt like our world had blown up. The one thing that we vowed to each other that weekend was that Ryan was a child like no other child and we would do everything that we had planned no matter what it takes. We have done just that with the help of our family and friends. Ryan is a bright, energetic, friendly, empathetic, and persistent little boy and his smile can brighten any room. He loves music, Mickey Mouse, playing soccer, and taking horseback riding lessons. Ryan will start Kindergarten in September at Evergreen Elementary School. DSAGR is like a second family to us. We have met so many wonderful people and they offer us support great opportunities to get together and have fun. It would mean a lot to us if you could support DSAGR as well.
