Hi! As many of you may already know Josh was diagnosed at birth with Down Syndrome. We want to thank everyone for all their love, support, and for embracing Josh just as he is. When we initially received the news it was really hard to wrap our heads around it. There were a lot of tears, emotions, and questions. But like any good parent we pushed passed our initial fears, got to know our son and fell in love with our tiny bundle of joy. We then started researching Down Syndrome. While doing this we came across DSAGR, which is a support group right here in Richmond! We reached out to them through the First Call program and started to attend some of the meetings and outings they had. Thanks to this group we didn't feel so alone, we found a group of people that are on a similar journey. We are creating a team (Team Cheezewhiz) for the Step Up for DS 5k on 10/8/16, to help raise awareness for Down Syndrome. We'd love for everyone to join. If walking isn't your thing, please consider making a small donation. Thank you so much for your continued support, Josh and Mom/Dad greatly appreciate it!
