Buddy Walk for Wee E

The one-mile, 7th annual Capital City Buddy Walk, hosted by our local Down syndrome not-for-profit, will take place, rain or shine, Saturday, October 4, 2008 (Antelope Park – 30th and “A” Streets – 8 a.m.). Of course, on behalf of our blessed cherub of a child with Down syndrome, we’ll walk. Feel free to join us either in spirit or in person. A donation of any amount will aid in the efforts of our local organization’s goal of raising awareness.

And, for those of you know me on a personal level, you will obviously discern that I do my very best to raise said awareness on a daily basis. And wow, I am just so excited that my “T21” specialty license plates just arrived. Now, if I could only get out of the house more often!

Our local organization now accepts donations for individual teams online. We are team “Elliot’s Expedition,” emulating my blog. I would love to see you donate on Elliot’s behalf. And, of course, we appreciate prayers for Elliot’s health and strength just as much. Wee E has come so far. I still cannot believe that he was a 32-week preemie!

Please do holler at me via email if indeed you’d like to walk with our family (I do realize that my readers are all over the world, but hey, if you're near by, you are more than welcome to join in the fun). I’ll be pushing the double stroller in all of its glory, embracing both of my dear baby boys. Nora will walk as well. To her dismay, I refuse to carry or push her too!

God bless.

Please go to either of the below mentioned to donate if you wish:

Michelle: Thank you for visiting my blog! My blog (in Swedish) is about the same things you write about, life with a kid with special needs and a lot of hospital visits due to his medical issues. Also about his siblings and our life in general.

This coming Monday I'm starting a play group at our local church for families with small children (0-3 years) with disabilities called "Tittut" which means "Peek-a-boo". That's what the radio interviews are about in my recent postings.

We live in a small community so there's not many kids with disabilities, but so far 5 families have shown interest!

I also hope Elliot is feeling better now.

Kind regards,
Mia mom to Victor 1½ (Noonan syndrome)
