My "LifeSong"

During this season of Miracles and Angels I have been reflecting on my "Lifesong" and the incredible journey God has led my family on. In the story "A Christmas Carol" it was Tiny Tim, the young boy with the disability, who changed the most wretched man in town, and this ultimately transformed the whole community. In the past 8 years I have witnessed this miraculous transformation power through the Bright Light my beautiful Angel Chloe shines on everyone she comes into contact with, and I feel very humbled and Blessed that I can be a loud Voice for these priceless children. Here is my "Lifesong" video, and I challenge everyone to consider what you will be remembered for and leave behind once your journey on this earth is complete!

Women of Grace Television Show

The 2 TV episodes I taped for "Women of Grace" on EWTN are now available for viewing online. Please pass this on, and now more than ever we need to raise our voices and show the world what a Priceless Blessing children with Down syndrome are.

Navigating the System: How to Be An Advocate (Program 10230)

"The only disease that needs to be "eradicated" is the culture of death we live in with its twisted mandates for perfection. If Down syndrome is a disease then the world needs to catch the symptoms and spread them quickly - unconditional love, purity, innocence, honesty, and an incorruptible spirit of Light!"

Preparing for Loving Challenge (Program 10229)

"Having a child with a disability allows you to quickly discover the true heart and core of people, and Chloe and all children with disabilities are a wake-up call to a world obsessed with perfection, instant gratification and self."

Whiz Kid: Chloe Kondrich

"She may only be seven years old, but Chloe Kondrich has a resumé more impressive than most adults. Kurt also works to educate people on the promise that lies within children with Down syndrome. Statistics show that 93 percent of expectant mothers chose abortion when they find out their baby had Down’s. Kurt hopes Chloe will help people change their minds and realize that every child, regardless of a special need, is a perfect child."
