My Son, Deacon
My Son, Deacon

We are so excited to have had Deacon's picture selected for the Times Square Video. This will be the third Buddy Walk® we have attended. My son, Deacon, is smart, beautiful, loving, adventurous, self-sufficient and playful. I'm so proud of him each and every day. I think the most wonderful thing about Deacon is that he's mine and I get to share his life and his experiences.
