Gretchen Anne, little pearl full of grace!
Gretchen’s Mother says, “When we chose her name, when she was born, when we only knew her for a few days...we weren’t aware of her Down syndrome diagnosis. I am grateful that we all got to know her before those words were spoken. Our lives changed at that moment in ways I could never have imagined. Over the last almost four years, our family has grown in spirit, in love, in friendship, but mostly in the awareness of what others tend to take for granted. We like to say her Magic is Contagious. Wouldn’t you agree?”
There are a number of ways to support Gretchen's Troupe;
- Walk with me in the Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk on Saturday, October 5th at Arvest Ballpark (Event 10 - 1 pm). Be sure to register by 9/11 to get my teams name on the back of your shirt!
- Make an online donation here to my team to support the Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk and the DSCNWA
- Tell others about the Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk and the great work of the DSCNWA organization
October is Down syndrome Awareness month. We hope that you will join us, celebrate the many wonderful qualities & gifts of people with Down syndrome, & walk with us. The Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk is the main fundraiser for the Down Syndrome Connection of Northwest Arkansas. No matter how you decide to support us, we want to thank you.
Signed with love and an extra chromosome
