This year was our first Buddy Walk. Last year David was fresh off of oxygen and I had just returned to work. I was still consumed with worries and stress of when heart surgery would happen. I related much more to families facing heart surgeries and dealing with feeding tubes, I still do. I also wasn't ready to face my fears of older children and young adults with Down syndrome. This year it was too hot in AZ, over 100 degrees. But it was fine. We chatted with a family with a cute little 3 year old. My 5 year old was hot and bored but next year we will go again. Its not every day I get to hang out with a bunch of people celebrating Down syndrome.
