Off to the Races

What a day it was. Charley Matus, Chris Capaldi and professional driver, Craig Capaldi of Capaldi Racing unloaded their truck with three gleaming track stars: Fiesta, Mustang and Focus- to make an event to remember for their supporters and Band of Angels. As the founder and mother of two riders, I was both excited and terrified--often simultaneously!And yes, if you look closely at the photo album on our Facebook page, you might see me in the passenger seat!

I learned that racing IS a sport. Very hard work and amazingly hot when properly suited up!Special thanks to Wolverine Bronze Company and Waterford Hills Raceway for use of the track and entire facility. Don't forget to take a zoom look at the Ford GT!! And don't forget, Capaldi has added the Band of Angels logo to their cars, ensuring that Down syndrome and cognitive challenges are recognized from Indy to Daytona!

Starry Night Precious Baby Update

Tuesday, September 11, 2012 @ 1:05 PM

Adia is going to be 5 months old on the 24th (OMG I can't believe I just wrote that- it feels like just yesterday she was still a kicking machine in my tummy.) She is just wonderful! 


We are so thankful that so far she is doing great. If you can believe it, she started rolling over from tummy to back at 3 1/2 weeks and at 3 1/2 months she started rolling from back to tummy which needless to say is well ahead of what they expect for her age. She is just magnificent and I can't imagine my life without her, and true to what you told me when we did the interview I wouldn't change ONE thing about her...... she is perfection and certainly one of God's greatest works!
