Strength for the Climb

My blog is a personal journey of the blessings I have been entrusted with and the strength I have been given to make the climb. I invite you to follow along as I write about faith, family, and Down syndrome.

Jogging for Jack 2014


As many of you know, we are big supporters of GiGi's Playhouse.

(Meeting Drew's family for the first time in person at Gigi's Playhouse.  We LOVE them and so grateful for their friendship!)


We are participating in their annual 5K event on June 7th, and I'm inviting you to become a member of our team! Jogging for Jack!  Last year we found out about the 5k two weeks before the event...and had a BLAST!  We would LOVE for you to join us this year!!
