I am a strong advocate for Down syndrome, and I try very hard to make sure that I live up to being a good one by helping others learn about Down syndrome. I President and Executive Board Director of the Durham Down syndrome Association (www.ddsa.ca). In the beginning of 2010, I was also asked by the Genetics Department at the Rouge Valley Health System Hospital to be a parent support guide for those families who have received a diagnosis of Down syndrome. In this role, I am available for the parents and families who might have questions or concerns, who maybe be struggling to come to terms with a diagnosis of Ds or just someone to talk or chat with to ask questions and find answers or to maybe see what the future might hold.

Along with being a Mommy (to Hunter, Hayleigh and new addition Hudson), I am a wife and 5 time incorporated business owner: Random Momemts Photography, Dragon Ink Tattoos & Piercings Inc., Creative & Custom Temporary Tattoos, Dragon Media Designs and of course, Welcome to our House. My husband John has been the most wonderful and supportive person in my life. When we learned about Hunter's diagnosis, he never faltered and when a moment may have seemed dark, confusing or challenging, he was (and still is) my number one supporter and my rock. He is a terrific father, and he continues to be my source of strength. He is my soul-mate.
Sandi, John, Hunter, Hayleigh & Hudson.
