William's Wild Kingdom

Our Story

What a wild and wonderful adventure we’re on! Two years ago, we saw a local elementary school’s performance of The Lion King, Jr. (and this year, saw my niece's Jr. High production!) The opening number brought tears to my eyes: Incredible costumes brought to life by the children depicted all kinds of animals come together to celebrate new life. Our son William’s birth into our family, and our growing with him, has helped to teach us the incomparable value of each individual life.

We are grateful to come together at events provided by organizations like the United Angels Foundation, to rub shoulders with families that have similar dynamics to our own. The Walk with Angels is a celebration of the value of each life, however different that life may seem in society at large. It is a celebration of the blessings that accompany challenges, and the light brought into our lives by those who came to earth with such amazing strengths--such as as an increased facility to love.

Thank you for joining us in support of William and those who help us to support him. You are a part of his wonderful team! If you are able to join us for the walk, feel free to wear something wild for fun. 

About The United Angels Foundation

United Angels Foundation (UAF) is a nonprofit, parent-to-parent support group for families of children with special needs (our Angels). UAF believes that the most effective way to support these children is by supporting the parents and guardians who are raising them. Our main goals at UAF are to provide interaction, education, and resources to our parents. We implement these goals through our newborn visits and packets, online chat forums, parent educational seminars, parent lunches, "Mom's Night Out", and youth and family activities. Funds raised from the Walk with Angels event will specifically go towards financing our educational seminars, activities (including Freedom at the Pool, Hee Haws, and our annual Christmas party, as well as age-related activities), and to administer our newborn and new member program. Please join us in advocating for all the angels in our community!
