Americus - - A Moultrie business man will help an Americus family fulfill a dream. Yesterday, we told you about a couple with three children who have Down Syndrome. The children are being honored in New York this weekend.
Until today, they didn't think they'd be able to make it there. Things have changed. Several generous people contacted us since yesterday asking how they can help. That help is going a long way to benefit a family whose daily life is a struggle. [
Meet four year old Josh. Yes, he's 4 years old...his condition contributes to his delayed growth. Raising him and his older brother and sister is a challenge, but their parents consider it a joy.
"Because they're my kids. They're my three little angels. They're angels in disguise on this earth and sometimes they're hard but to hear their laughter...They come running through the house squealing and I'm like that's it. That's the joy right there," says Mother Cynthia Medrano.
The kids were selected to be featured on a billboard in Time Square. Up until Wednesday, they didn't think they'd be able to see it.
After watching our broadcast Wednesday night, businessman Michael Grubbs decided to reach into his pockets - donating over $3,000. He called the family to share the good news.
"Special needs kids are a gift from God," Grubbs says.
The family didn't expect it. Now they're making last minute plans to get to the Big Apple.
"I'm a spur of the moment kind of person anyway. I'm like oh well were going. Everything is at the spur of the moment. This is my kind of vacation," Medrano says.
A rare vacation that's also educational. Grubbs is glad he could help make it happen.
"You know, help where you can."
Help for a family that struggles everyday to stay afloat.
"Everybody ask would you ever want a quote typical child. I'm satisfied with what I got," says the childrens' father, Rusty Medrano.
Another viewer donated $500 to the family. Another gave $100. Also, one of the children's school raised $200 for the family to make the trip.
At the National Down Syndrome Society's Buddy Walk this weekend, the children will not only see themselves in lights, they'll also get to interact with other children also living with this serious condition.
