Maddie, Ashley, Chris, and Donna
What fun we had at this dance held on July 27, 2013! There was such energy as all our "stars" came down the runway into the Midlothian Civic Center to strike a pose for their paparazzis. They were greeted by Maddie and the entourage by a standing ovation at the door. Once some got their picture taken, off to the Nachos/Pickles stand they went. Others were so ready for fun, they ran to the games table or immediately hit the dance floor. Brandy, a full-sized poodle and therapy dog belonging to Dina and Bryan Klotz of Glamour Dog Salon was a big hit with the kids.

"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!
