Baby sister won gold metal in special olympics

My baby sister won a gold metal in the NY state special Olympics games today. She received her metal in figure skating, we are all so proud of her, now she is in the running to be picked to go to the nationals. We'll have to wait to see if they pick her.

I found the link to the newspaper, but couldn’t find the article. http://www.democratandchronicle.com/....dll/frontpage

Congratulations to your sister and I hope she continues to shine and enjoy participating in special events.



I know someone here that helps out with our local special olympic competions. He said it's great to see the strength in the youth he works with.

It was only in the paper for that one day. I have it saved in my files but don't know how to post it on here.
