Our Buddy!

We have some good friends who live in Kansas City. They have three BEEutiful children! Caden is 5, Finley is 3, and Ashtin is 1 and they are some of the QUTist children you will ever see. Ashtin is a child with Down's Syndrome - she's a child first, the Down's Syndrome comes last! She is absolutely adorable and squishy and sweet and smart. Did I just say smart? Yes. This little girl is so smart, she loves books, she knows several signs, she waves, she relates to people, she can melt your heart, and I am going to steal her one day (like I don't have enough on my plate already!). This weekend was the "Buddy Walk" in Kansas City. Families from all over the Kansas and Missouri area gather to walk and play with their "Buddy" - ours was Ashtin. I was amazed at how many people were there! The purpose of the whole event is to raise awareness and $$ for Down's Syndrome. We got there early, set up our little tent, then went exploring . . . .
