Apple picking adventure at Davis Famland Oct. 5

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

Please Support Me and the Boston Marathon MDSC Team

Dear Friends of DADs, I am a new member of the organization and a relatively new
parent.  My son Chase was born back in July with Down Syndrome and it has changed
my life.  At first we were devastated, not knowing what to expect. However, as each
day went by, we became increasingly excited and accepting of his differences. On the
day Chase was born, we were prepared and madly in love with this little bundle of
joy. To us, he is perfect.
