We started going to GiGi’s when our baby was a year old. For the whole year prior our nurse kept reminding us that GiGi’s was there and that we should go and that they were a resource for us. If we knew then what we know now, we would have gone when Alayna was first born. Everyone at GiGi’s…the staff, volunteers and the families, opened their arms to us on the first day we walked in. GiGi’s has become part of our family. We look forward to going to GiGi’s for the programs and activities they have. We look forward to the interaction with the other families. They are truly a source of support and friendship for us.
We encourage people to sign up for the Challenge in support of all children with Down syndrome that amaze us every day with their unconditional joy and love. We want to make this world a better place for our children, especially our children with special needs, and GiGi’s allows us the opportunities to do that.
-John and Liz H, parents of Alayna
