This past Saturday my family and I walked in the 2012 Buddy Walk® in El Paso, Texas on behalf of my daughter Samantha. Samantha is 12 years old and was born with Down syndrome. She picked the theme this year for our family. She is amazed with superheroes so she decided that we would all be superheroes. Our team name was Samantha’s Superheroes. We each got to wear a cape as we walked amongst the other buddies on Saturday. Samantha enjoyed everyone stopping to admire her cape.
