Walter was born last year on March 12th. Jessica and I found out about his diagnosis of Down Syndrome at 12 weeks into her pregnancy. At first, we cried because we were scared and didn't know what to expect. However, we were lucky to meet with a group of people that educated us on what this all really meant.
Now, a year later, there is not a day that goes by where Walter isn't lighting up a room with his smiles and laughs. He is so easy going, a great sleeper and melts hearts wherever he goes.
We decided on the team name, Walt's Wolfpack, because his support system is unreal. He has so many different people that love him -family, therapists, and doctors. Walter has already touched so many people with his joy.
The Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis does so much for families like ours and helps prepare for all stages of life. If you would like to be a part of our team for the Step Up for Down Syndrome Walk on June 7th, please click the link and join! If you can't make it to the event, you can still donate!
Thank you so much!
Chris, Jessica, Arthur and Walter
