I’m not sure if you noticed or not, but for this episode of #TeamGellibean, we have a new introduction! All of our team members are highlighted doing all of the things that we love, in a fun way!
I just LOVE IT!
As you all know, #TeamGellibean came about when this little girl joined our family. Princess Gellibean was born with an extra chromosome and this led us to a wonderful organization called The Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines Inc.
At a time when our future seemed so uncertain, Nino and I leaned on the experience of parents who had begun the same journey in parenting a child with special needs, years before us. We attended the Early Intervention Seminar and made friends that we know will last a lifetime. Bonding and meeting parents who were going through the same feelings of uncertainty somehow solidified our faith in Him, and our friendships with one another.
Flash forward to a time when Gellibean has blossomed into a rambunctious 6 year old, running, jumping, and amusing us with her antics, we have realized that every day is a celebration because of her.
And what better way to celebrate Gelli and her extra chromosome than during Down Syndrome Consciousness Month with our DSAPI FAMILY. (Remember, friends are the family we choose!)
Follow along in this episode, as we highlight snippets and fun filled moments during the annual Happy Walk which is hosted by DSAPI, and sponsored by SM Cares. We couldn’t do the things we do without the support of other organizations who love and include our children in all that they do as well.
If you want to walk with us in support of Down Syndrome Awareness, please let me know! We are always recruiting new members to love on and have fun with our girl!
