On November 18 2009 at 4:02 am William Alan Bartosch was joyfully welcomed into our family. He weighed in at 7 lbs 9 oz and 20 in long. We were stunned to discover that he was born with Trisomy 21, or Down syndrome. We love him unconditionally from the top of his toe-head to the tips of his toes. We know that this diagnosis will not define him. He is a happy, healthy little boy that just happens to have an extra chromosome.

Follow us on this unexpected and exciting journey as we learn how to live life Will's Way.

Buddy Walk 2010

The Columbus Buddy walk is October 3, 2010!
This walk benefits the Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio and promotes awareness and acceptance of all individuals with Down Syndrome. It is a great chance to show your love, support and acceptance of Will and also to raise money for this organization that provides valuable programs and resources for our family and many others. DSACO has provided us with much needed support and resources for the last 8 months and we are so grateful to them.
We would be delighted if you could join us for the walk, but if you can't, we would also greatly appreciate any donation that you are able to give.
The 1-mile walk starts at 10am and there are fun activities for the kids after we walk. We hope to set up a tailgate before the walk, as is the tradition, and celebrate Will's life. Please go to http://www.columbusbuddywalk.org/ to register to walk with Will or to donate in Will's name, by choosing 'Team Will's Way' at the top of your registration or donation page.
Thank you for loving Will and for supporting our family:)
