Buddy Walk update

Last weekend we had the opportunity to attend the Buddy Walk here in Sioux Falls.  The Buddy Walk® was established in 1995 by the National Down Syndrome Society to celebrate Down syndrome Awareness Month in October and to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.  We had a blast!

The event was a huge success.  There was over 1,000 people in attendance!  My brother David, and his wife Kassy came too!

As we’ve learned more about resources and support groups in our community for special needs, we’ve been so blessed to meet some amazing people.  This is Mike & Kristin and their son Hendrik.  Mike & Kristin are so wonderful, and have blessed us so much.  They adopted Hendrik a few years ago, and has made leaps and bounds in their family.
