We filled the streets of downtown Dallas on Saturday, March 25, 2017 in support of people with disabilities. About 50 people walked on this gorgeous day with our For Maddie's Sake group at the annual Marcch for Respect, a half-mile walk hosted by the Arc of North Texas.
Laughter, hugs and encouraging words from friends, family and co-workers made a wonderful day for a beautiful cause. We are so thankful for everyone who came out and who gave donations to support our cause.
"My name is Maddie and I'm a small teenager who enjoys life and has fun wherever I am!"
"There's more to me than just my special needs and my diagnoses. People are very curious about me and I don't mind sharing.
I was born with a rare disorder Feingold Syndrome which consists of my most noticeable characteristic,
Microcephaly (small head). Mommy says mine is cute and petite...just like me!
"God gave it to me, so I thought I'd wear it."
