Our Andrew was born with an Intellectual Developmental Disability, Down syndrome or T21.
Andrew is amazing! He is Smart, Funny & Determined. He is our miracle. Andrew has an extra copy of the 23rd chromosome.
Down Syndrome affects 1 out of every 700 children born each year. As doctors have learned more, the life expectancy, the quality of life and the therapies available have allowed individuals to live amazing and productive lives! We today, have successful business people, athletes, models, actors who all carry an extra copy of the 21st genome.
As parents we have many dreams, one is leaving a legacy & making a difference.
Did you know that 80% of adults with a disability are not offered opportunities to work?
We plan to change that!
Our goal is to be an inclusive employer, offering opportunities for all to work together, spreading laughter, love and living our core values every day!

Andrew is our miracle, our blessing and our funny little man! He loves his Hot Wheels Monster Trucks, Disney Plus, Music. He is fearless, stubborn, determined and mischievous. He is so bright, learns by watching his classmates and working with his teacher & helper.
When we received our prenatal diagnosis we were scared, concerned and very worried. We prayed hard for Andrew, and so did many people all around the world! We had been told that Andrew would have no nose bone, that he had significantly too much inter-cranial pressure on the left side of his brain. They had major concerns for Andrew's well being. He has been completed healed of holes in his heart & cleared by John's Hopkins and has no limitations!
We reached out to our local Down syndrome chapter and they provided us with support, answers and living, thriving examples of families who live amazing lives with T-21. We watched as kids found ways and strategies to achieve, overcome and thrive! Our goal as parents is to be a resource for families that have either received a diagnosis or have learned during child birth. We want to show them that everything is possible with prayer, love and hard work!
Andrew is so excited to be a Mountain Home Bomber & can't wait to make new friends at school & church!
