About a year and a half ago, baby River was born into this world. He was born with down syndrome. Although he was born into an extremely loving family, he was not born with tremendous health. He was under-developed and spent the first couple of months of his exsistence, hooked up to tubes and wires, fighting for his life at Doernbecher's Hospital. In fact, no one knew if baby River would pull through or not. It was a scary time, for a long time. Well, the little ninja kicked ass and ended up being one the happiest, healthiest and brightest tykes you could imagine. Nowadays he enjoys, singing, dancing, clapping, pool time, eating, snoozing, family time, and all else the world has to offer. We'd like to celebrate his life by joining in buddy fest and giving back to the community that will be such a big part of his life, the NWDSA. If you have the means and the desire, please help us reach our $1,500.00 goal by donating. No amount is too little. Thank you!
