"WAHOO!!" was my chant for the day. I was surrounded by people who love me as we walked the streets at Dallas West End Marketplace. There were thousands of people there to respect people with disabilities. This was my third or fourth time to walk at this annual event. The last two years a live band performed and got the place hopping! At one of the community resource booths I got a really good resource about a soft shell helmet that can be customized to my head size. Wahoo!! I've been waiting a long time for that! If you sign my guest book and leave me your email address, we'll be sure to invite you to walk with us next year.

"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!
