Welcome to our 2018 Tulsa Buddy Walk® team fundraising page!  We are walking to show our support for our child and more than 400,000 other individuals with Down syndrome in the U.S. Every dollar we raise brings us one step closer to ensuring that our child and every individual will have the opportunity to reach their potential.

Our fundraising efforts will support local programs and services, as well as National Down Syndrome Society advocacy and public awareness initiatives that benefit all individuals with Down syndrome.

Make your tax-deductible donation today and take the first step toward helping us achieve our goal. Thank you for your support!

Green class day 3. Walked in, unpacked his lunch, put it in the fridge, hung up his backpack in his cubby and sat down to trace the letter J. All in the first 5 minutes. I love my boy and I love @llhtulsa. 🙌🏻💙

TEN years today. I’d choose you; in a hundred lifetimes, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.
We’ve been through so much in the past ten years. I know whatever life throws at us we’ll make it until forever. 
I love you so much Joe.

Jonah’s check-up with the cardiologist today went well. Jonah has a small patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) in his heart which we have always known about. This is a blood vessel that connects the pulmonary artery to the arota. His is so small that it’s not expected to cause concern but we’ll go back in two years to check again. 
Most children with Down syndrome have some type of heart defect and some require surgery.

We ordered a window doggie door from Amazon and installed it last night. The dog isn’t interested but Jonah sure is. 😂🐶

Amazing getaway in Las Vegas to celebrate our 10 year anniversary a bit early. It was so fun going back to where it all began. Swipe for our wedding photo. Both photos taken at @caesarspalace Venus Garden. 🤵👰🎲💞

Happy Father’s Day in Heaven daddy. Because of you, I knew what standard to look for in a husband and a father to my own children. You cherished me and I’ll never ever forget that. I love you and miss you so much.

It’s definitely a Monday over here. I’ve got a sore throat and a headache. Jonah is congested, suuuuuper cranky and was up several times last night (which means I was too). But then they hold hands and my heart melts. 😍

Today our sweet Jonah turns F O U R! Four years have absolutely flown. We are beyond blessed that he is ours and thank the Lord for him every single day. He is the child we never knew we always wanted. He is a perfect fit in our family and has changed us all for the better. We are celebrating him BIG today. 
I asked him what he wanted to do on his birthday and he said “Jonah cake!” So we will eat lots of cake and enjoy every ounce of his precious soul.
