KIDS West!

KIDS has branched out to the West Coast! California mom Heather Graves proudly carried our banner at a candlelight prayer vigil in San Diego.
Heather reports:
It is with great pride that my sister and I held the "Keep Infants with Down Syndrome" Banner at our Pro-Life Candlelight Prayer Vigil along Harbor Dr. in downtown San Diego. There were about 180 people lining the street holding signs, candles and praying together. We got a lot of support and encouragement by those who passed by.

The birth of my son John Carroll 3 years ago filled my life with joy. It also opened my eyes to the horrific reality of the over 90% abortion rate of the innocent unborn diagnosed with Down Syndrome. I have always been an active member of the pro-life movement. I was ashamed that I was not aware of this grim reality. I am so grateful for the opportunity to defend the life of the unborn.
We are thrilled to have KIDS represented on the West Coast!

Incidentally, the banner Heather carried was donated by Melissa Souza. Melissa does not have a child with Down syndrome, but she has a heart for them.  She contacted me last year wanting to contribute something to KIDS.  I suggested signs or a banner, and she quickly located a pro-life printer who made a banner from our logo.  Melissa has a business called Baby’s Own Space, making beautiful personalized name plaques for children. Please check out her website and support this pro-life mom’s business.

Thank you Heather and Melissa for supporting KIDS and helping us defend and celebrate the lives of children with Down syndrome!

  1. How cool! My husband and 2 oldest were there again. So glad your organization had its debut in the self-proclaimed "city of choice".
