Our third son Lucas was born in February 2013. He was diagnosed prenatally with Down’s Syndrome when I was 20 weeks pregnant. We were absolutely devastated, but little did we know what a blessing he would be! His smiles and laughter will brighten anyone’s day!
We moved from Hernando, MS to Madison in December 2013 with Lucas’ name already on the waiting list for The Little Lighthouse. Then we got the news that there was a new classroom opening and he could start in January when he was 11 months old. We were so excited and felt like God’s timing was perfect.
In the last 8 months, Lucas has learned so much! He loves songs and doing all the hand motions that go along with it. He also has started learning to communicate through sign language. All of the teachers and staff work so hard to make sure each child meets their potential. They provide physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy along with 2 wonderful teachers in each classroom. The love and support the school provides is tuition free for parents. This is such a blessing to our family. If you’re looking for a charity to support that pours it heart into each child, please look no further than the Little Light House. I cannot wait to see what great things this wonderful organization has in store for Lucas this year!
