Jude's 4th Buddy Walk® came and went, and I cannot help to look back at the past photos that were took throughout the years and see how much our team has grown. We went from having nine people at our first Buddy Walk® in 2008 to having 43 people registered to walk in 2011! I am so touched that so many people are rooting for Jude to succeed and genuinely care about him. Knowing that friends and family will always be there to support him makes me feel at ease that he will never be alone in this world and will always have a solid foundation to support him whenever he needs someone to lean on. I would like to thank my family and friends for being there for my family and especially Jude. We are so blessed to have you in our lives. And to my son Jude... I love you so much I wish I could express it into words what I feel towards you. You are my sunshine, the reason I live. I wish that your life will be greater than you ever expect it to be. I hope all of your dreams come true and I hope I get to share them with you. You're truly the best thing that has happened to me and whatever twist or turn fate brings our way I will always be there to guide you down the road you choose. I cannot wait to see what see what comes our way!
