Those of you who know us, know we are just a regular family that happens to have a daughter with Down syndrome and Autism. We found a fantastic intensive therapy camp for Annie that also has an activity program for siblings. In trying to come up with a way to raise the costs for therapy, travel and lodging, we decided to see if any of our family, friends or kind souls wanted to sponsor Annie. All sponsors will receive a special I HELPED SEND ANNIE TO CAMP gift. We promise not to ask any of you to buy cookies or magazines or gift wrap this year!Check out the camp here:http://www.adamscamp.orgThanks for being so awesome! -The Anteau Family :)
After an exhausting, but successful adoption event on Sunday, we all came home looking to kick back a little and relax,...but upon reviewing our voice mails we came across one that let us know our days work has yet to come to a conclusion. In the voice mail, a handicapped lady had borne witness to a dog being thrown out of a car and nearly being run over. The lady was legally blind and bound to a wheelchair, but somehow managed to save the young dog and get it to her house,...but she couldn't keep the dog and was not sure quite what to do at this point, so she contacted us. Exhausted, yet newly energized upon listening to this horrific story, we knew we couldn't let the dog end up in the shelter, so we gathered what energy we had remaining and picked the dog up. Savannah, as she is newly named, is remarkably happy, loving and trusting to people considering what people just did to her. From this day forward, she will never know such heartlessness again.
