This past weekend I participated in the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society 12th Annual Buddy Walk on Team Trinity. If you don't know who Trinity is, here is a little background on how we first met (click here!) The purpose of this walk is to raise awareness of Down syndrome & celebrate the journey that the families take together. THOUSANDS of people showed up for the walk & festival afterwards. Trinity was joined by her parents - Gregory & Nina Gardner and her 4 siblings Sariah, Zion, Jordan & Christian, as well as her grandmother and a few family friends!
Nina recently did an interview with Savannah Morning News and this is what she had to say about Trinity -
“I want Trinity to do everything that I want for my other kids,’’ Nina Gardner said. To have a job and earn her own money. Have a spouse. Have a family. Have happiness. We don’t see her as any different.’’
The Buddy Walk was definitely a celebration! Here are a few pictures of all of the fun - can you believe how big Judah has gotten?!?
