A Special Message From "Miles For Morty"

What a beautiful year this has been! Morty is thriving beyond any of our expectations! Morty has taken a new adventure in his life by being a big brother…again! He adores his new little sister Prairie. He is always making her laugh. He and Winston love being at the same school, going on lake adventures together, and protecting their little sister of course. They are best buddies one moment, fight the next, but always look out for each other. Morty still loves every bit of music, making people smile and doing yoga! This year he is very proud to have a mullet, even winning First Place at the Iowa State Fair's People's Choice Mullet Contest!!! GO MORTY! We have appreciated the support we get from Down Syndrome Innovations as they have contributed to Morty’s thriving success! They have been here for us since day 1! We appreciated their guidance this year on many things including directing Morty to get special needs swim lessons to help make sure we keep Morty safe while at the lake. Although Zach and I have had a child with Down syndrome for the last 8 years we are still learning things every day, we are comforted knowing we have not only an amazing community through all of you, but we are also supported through Down Syndrome Innovations. Thank you for any contribution you can make to help Down Syndrome Innovations to continue to help individuals with Down syndrome and their families. We are grateful to always know they are a phone call away. Thank you for always being there for us too, Morty is so lucky to have all of you, so are we :) Thank you!!
