Isn't it ONEder-ful?

I remember a year ago when some blog friends started posting about a new little girl Nella that was born with Down Syndrome to Kelle Hampton and her husband. Kelle had written her feelings so expressively and with so much emotion that reminded me how I felt when Colin was born. It was amazing how someone could put so much emotion into words that felt like what I had experienced.

Just like all of us, Kelle and her family have grown to see the beauty in their little girl and have done something amazing with Nella's life journey...they started the ONEder fund in her honor. All of the proceeds from the ONEder fund go directly to the National Down Syndrome Society, an organization dedicated to the ..."value, acceptance, and inclusion of people with Down Syndrome.". In just four days, the Hampton family has raised over $50,000 for the NDSS! For more information on the ONEder fund, please visit Kelle Hampton's blog at Enjoying the Small Things . She is extremely talented with her words and her pictures and is doing something so great for Colin's community, so we thank you!

Kelle made a video to highlight this community of people and to raise awareness for her fund. I suggest grabbing some tissues before sitting down to watch! We are so proud to have Colin in this video!
