Hey all,

My name is Emily but I prefer Emjay. I am trying to raise funds by selling brownies at my sister's work and well (duh) setting up this "crowdfunding" page, so thank you for clicking the link to have a look at my page!

This is my youngest daughter, Taylah, she's 2 years old and she was born with Down Syndrome. She is an absolute joy, brings light into our lives every day and has changed my view of the world in so many ways.

Every year the (Down Syndrome Diagnosis Network) DSDN hosts Rockin' moms (mothers of children with Down syndrome in our online groups) from across the country (and the world) for a weekend retreat to connect, recharge and inspire. 


Our time will be spent:

  • Building relationships in real life that have been established online
  • Hearing from moms that are giving back to new and expectant parents and learning ways to make an impact for other new families
  • Completing service projects to support new families and welcome them into the Ds community
  • Pampering and recharging moms
  • ROCKIN' IT RUN - 5k Fun Run Sunday morning- details here!

Aside from trying to bake my way to the USA, I would be very thankful for any help I can get along the way! This retreat would mean the world to me as I have always wanted to travel, I would get to meet some amazing ladies I've only met online, and it's gonna be an amazing way for me to learn about any possibilities in my little girl's future and best prepare myself for any challenges that may arise therefore giving her the best possible life I can!

Any donation or share is very much appreciated. Thank you all for your time and have a lovely day.

Best Wishes,
Emily.
